    One of the strangest
    and most appealing novels you will read this year!


    Tom Lee’s first novel is about a young jogger who is in a relationship
    with an older woman. She is both his coach and his mentor. Coach Fitz, as he
    calls her, seeks to instil a philosophy of running which combines ‘controlled
    intensity’ with a curiosity about places and their histories. A country boy, he
    is fascinated by the landscapes of the city beaches and parks through which they
    travel. And he has his own obsessions – with exercise routines, ancestral
    legacies, outdoor gyms, horse-racing, weather conditions and inner-city eating
    habits. Then, suddenly, their relationship falls apart, over the issue of sex –
    and he becomes a coach and mentor in turn, to a young man this time, as he attempts
    to orchestrate an ideal expression of his emotional, athletic and intellectual
    urges.


    Coach Fitz is an exploration of the outdoor mentality that plays
    such a dominant role in the Australian psyche. It is remarkable for its
    observations about landscape and physical exercise, embedded in the training
    routines and dialogues of the runners. But most of all it is about the emotions
    and aspirations of youth, and the complications these engender.
