Abstract or Summary
  • "A Fool's Marathon" is a fabulist novel exploring themes of Platonic love, imagination and its relationship to reality, and psychological coming of age through the exploits of a young Oscar Duplenty. The work-in-progress is presented in two sections: the first a contiguous five chapters from the beginning of the newest draft, and the second a selection of passages from a previous edition. These selections elucidate the book's major themes, describe its characters' motivating concerns, and exhibit a variety of possible styles for the finished work. This excerpt from "A Fool's Marathon" is presented both as a work of fiction and as a study of work in fiction, designed to help us understand the relationship between our lived experience and the narratives we inherit and construct.
