What's Marathon Man About

Publisher Summary

William Goldman’s remarkable career spans more than five decades, and his credentials run the gamut from bestselling novelist to Oscar-winning screenwriter to Hollywood raconteur. He’s beloved by millions of readers as the author of the classic comic-romantic fantasy The Princess Bride. And he’s notorious for creating the most harrowing visit to the dentist in literary and cinematic history–in one of the seminal thrillers of the twentieth century. . . . MARATHON MAN Tom “Babe” Levy is a runner in every sense: racing tirelessly toward his goals of athletic and academic excellence–and endlessly away from the specter of his famous father’s scandal-driven suicide. But an unexpected visit from his beloved older brother will set in motion a chain of events that plunge Babe into a vortex of terror, treachery, and murder–and force him into a race for his life . . . and for the answer to the fateful question, “Is it safe?”
