Summary
"Blending elements of self-help, memoir, and sports writing, 'So Many Olympic Exertions' is an experimental novel that perhaps most resembles what the ancient Greeks called hypomnemata, or 'notes to the self.' Taken together, the observations, reminders, and self-exhortations that make up this novel constitute a personal handbook on 'how to live' or perhaps more urgently 'why to live,' a question the narrator, graduate student Athena Chen, desperately needs to answer. When Chen hears news that her brilliant friend from college has committed suicide, she is thrown into a fugue of fear and doubt. She begins to compile a collection of anecdotes and close readings of moments in the sometimes harrowing (i.e. bloody) world of sports, and in so doing, starts to question the validity and usefulness of our current narratives of success."--Back cover
