Beschreibung

'A wonderfully colourful and attentive novel that subtly combines the tangible pains of the race with the echoes of war' Sunday Express In 1928, five cyclists from Australia and New Zealand made history by forming the first English-speaking team to ride in the Tour de France. This group sets off on a 5,476 kilometre journey that sees them ride out beyond their limits. No one is certain they will make it to the finish line - least of all our narrator, a New Zealander racing on a dangerous mix of drink, drugs and damaged memories. Travelling through a northern France still scarred by the First World War, his self-imposed test of endurance takes him ever closer to his own final, invisible mile. A visceral, psychological novel, The Invisible Mile is an extraordinary re-imagining of the race as a mediation on memory, on the creation of mythology, history, guilt and love. 'The Invisible Mile relates this odyssey with symbolic force and poetic finesse' Sydney Morning Herald 'Revealing the force of man's courage and will in the face of physical and psychological challenge, this is a brave and beautiful novel' Megan Bradbury, author of Everyone is Watching 'A blood, sweat and tears odyssey that becomes a searing hinterland for returning memories, absence and loss. Mesmerizing' Alan McMonagle, author of Ithaca

David Coventry received his MA in 2010 from the International Institute of Modern Letters at Victoria University. The Invisible Mile was published in New Zealand by Fergus Barrowman at Victoria University Press (the NZ publisher of Eleanor Catton) on June 11th 2016 to reviews calling the book "brilliant", "a tour de force", an "important and impressive debut" and "a dream to read". The Invisible Mile debuted at #2 on the NZ bestseller list and remained in the Top Ten for three straight months afterwards.
