Contraportada:

-Snyder tunes Aganetha's voice so beautifully at each stage of her life that the comparisons to Elizabeth Strout's unforgettable Olive Kitteridge are inevitable. Yet Aganetha is most definitely her own person from start to finish--a process Snyder has captured with exceptional grace.---Minneapolis Star Tribune

An unforgettable novel about competition, ambition, and a woman's struggle to earn a place in a man's world, Girl Runner follows young runner Aganetha Smart, who defied everyone's expectations to win a gold medal for Canada in the 1928 Olympics. It was a revolutionary victory because these were the first Games in which women could compete in track events. Now, Aganetha is in a nursing home, and nobody realizes that the frail centenarian was once a bold pioneer.

When two strangers appear asking to interview Aganetha for a documentary about female athletes, she readily agrees. Despite her frailty, she yearns for adventure and escape, and though her achievement may have been forgotten by history, her memories of chasing gold in Amsterdam remain sharp. But that triumph is only one thread in the rich tapestry of her life, and as Aganetha's story takes shape, it becomes clear that the power of family ties--and secrets--does not diminish through the years, and that these filmmakers may not be who they claim to be....

-Instantly mesmerizing and effortlessly beautiful.---Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia

Descripción Harper, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 231 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Resonant of Elizabeth Gilbert s The Signature of All Things and Tracy Chevalier s Remarkable Creatures, Girl Runner is an unforgettable, beautifully written novel that celebrates a woman born to reach beyond the limitations of her time. As a young runner, Aganetha Smart defied everyone s expectations to win a gold medal for Canada in the 1928 Olympics. It was a revolutionary victory, because this was the first Games in which women could compete in track events--and they did so despite opposition. But now Aganetha Smart is in a nursing home, and nobody realizes that the frail centenarian was once a bold pioneer. When two young strangers appear asking to interview Aganetha for their film about female athletes, she readily agrees. Despite her frailty, she yearns for adventure and escape. And though her achievement may have been forgotten by history, her memories of chasing gold in Amsterdam remain sharp. But that triumph is only one thread in the rich tapestry of her life. Her remarkable story is colored by tragedy as well as joy, and in Girl Runner Carrie Snyder pulls back the layers of time to reveal how Aganetha s amazing athleticism helped her escape from a family burdened by secrets and sorrow. However, as much as Aganetha tries, she cannot outrun her past or the social conventions of her time. As the pieces of her life take shape, it becomes clear that these filmmakers may not be who they seem. . . . Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780062336040
