El corredor de fondo" es casi sin ninguna duda la más famosa, aclamada y exitosa historia de amor gay de todos los tiempos. Surgida tras el encuentro de Patricia Nell Warren con un atleta gay, la autora ha sabido captar la complejidad y tortuosidad de las relaciones homosexuales, enfrentadas y obstaculizadas por una sociedad poco dada a conceder un cuestionamiento o ruptura de sus estructuras. Harlam Brown, estricto entrenador de atletismo, y Billy Sive, atleta gay, serán los dos protagonistas y héroes de esta historia, que deben llevar a cabo su particular carrera contra los prejuicios y la incomprensión de los que les rodean, para poder no sólo llevar a cabo su amor sino también la participación en los Juegos Olímpicos de 1976. Traducida a nueve lenguas y con más de diez millones de ejemplares vendidos, "El corredor..." trasciende el simple fenómeno de masas para convertirse en todo un ejercicio de vindicación a través de la prosa.
