On 27 July 2009 Eddie Izzard set off on an incredible journey round Britain. With just a few weeks of preparation - and a lot of determination - he ran an astonishing 43 marathons in 51 days, covering more than 1,100 miles. In his first book for twelve years, Eddie Izzard describes what inspired him to run, and what drove him to keep going. He also offers an entertaining and typically idiosyncratic account of the places he ran through. His journey was also an opportunity to reflect on his experiences to date, and his hopes for the future, and as he runs round the country, the places and people he encounters trigger memories of his childhood and his early days as a struggling stand up. The result is a hugely entertaining account of his incredible journey round Britain that also provides an intriguing insight into one of the world's greatest comedians.
