One man's (somewhat) harebrained decision to train for a marathon with his 18-year-old daughter results in a rekindled love for his family, running, and life. Foreman's prose is light hearted, funny, and informative. It's almost enough to make me want to get back on the trail myself!

Blackass: A Novel Cover Image
It's Complicated--Contact Us for More Information
ISBN: 9781555977337
Published: Graywolf Press - March 1st, 2016

With vivacious prose, a sense of humor sharp like a shard of glass, and a wicked command of the ironies of life, Blackass is a revelation.A. Igoni Barrett's debut novel takes Kafka's Metamorphosis on a tour of contemporary race, gender, and identity politics, and then hurls it through the meat grinder of post-colonial Nigeria and post-modern storytelling. Smart, funny, daring, perceptive, Blackass is one of the breakout books of the year.
