Pain

Front Cover
Author House, Jun 13, 2006 - Medical - 232 pages

Richard Dubin is a talented distance runner at a major southern university. Pain is the story of Richard’s senior year as he proceeds with varying success through the year, from cross country through the Olympic Trials, all the while trying to manage a seesawing relationship with a beautiful and fascinatingly unpredictable woman, 10 years his senior.

Richard’s university is one of the great American party schools and we are treated to a series of uninhibited college blowouts, featuring copious liquid consumption, naked kegstands, nude relays. . . and, most daring of all, poetry reading!

As the pressures mount, Richard’s life begins to unravel. All the forces converge at the Olympic Trials in New Orleans and it is there that Richard comes to the edge of the abyss.
