About the Author:

Tom McNab has experienced success as Olympic coach, prize winning novelist and Technical Director of the Oscar-winning film "Chariots of Fire". One of the world's leaders in sport, he has coached international athletes, the British Olympic Bobsleigh team and England's silver medal-winning squad in Rugby's 1992 World Cup. In the same year, he was awarded the British Coach of the Year. Tom has written several best selling novels, including Flanagan's Run which reached number 1 on the world's best seller lists, with fil rights taken by Disney. In 1982 he won the Scottish Novelist of the Year award and his repertoire of sporting films includes his work as script consultant and technical advisor for Chariots of Fire. He has been a commentator for ITV and Channel 4, a freelance journalist for the Observer, Sunday Telegraph, Times and Independent.

From AudioFile:

In 1931, wheeler-dealer, gambler, and promoter Charles Flanagan offers an enormous jackpot to the winner of the first-ever Trans-America race. Over 2,000 people sign on, including professional and amateur athletes; ordinary, out-of-shape folks hit hard by the Depression; a contingent of Hitler Youth; a burlesque dancer; and many others. Tom McNab's 1982 novel chronicles far more than a cross-country footrace, and narrator Rupert Degas keeps the 3,000-mile journey exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting. Degas gives substance to McNab's detailed character snapshots with impeccable accents and energetic personality shifts. His narration of the constantly changing American landscape--the Rockies, the Mojave, the Great Plains--provides a keen sense of place. Degas's sensitive performance of this epic adventure makes the listener the clear winner. Liner notes that include bios and an essay by McNab accompany the CD edition. S.J.H.
