After nearly twenty years of chasing oblivion, a fight in a bar reveals to a newly sober Mishka Shubaly that he is able to run long distances. Despite his best attempts to dodge enlightenment and personal growth, the irreverent young drunk and drug abuser learns to tame his self-destructive tendencies through ultrarunning. His outrageous sense of humor, however, rages unabated.

I liked how the story flowed together so well and it felt like I was sitting with my friend Mishka having a cup of tea as he told me his story.
The story grabbed me by the collar and made me listen. After a bout of over training, this was the story I needed to hear. I'm going for a run.
Mishka Shubaly is a truly great story teller. I got this after reading I Swear I'll Make It Up to You. Although it covers similar ground it was definitely worth it. Like seeing Hendrix play Like a Rolling Stone at two different gigs, it's the same song but each performance had it's own flourishes.
