Running Out of Time

Ultrarunning and Endurance in an Era of Climate Collapse

Callum Cant

Running Out of Time asks why running matters, and what its history of collective struggle can tell us about living in a society on the verge of climate collapse.

The freedom of running stands in total opposition to the unfreedom of our modern lives, and shows us a way out — an acceleration towards a newly designed social world, where we can chase down the horizons of the possible as fast as our legs will carry us.

Combining first-hand accounts of running a really long way with a broader account of human nature, sports science, contemporary capitalism and nihilism in an era of climate collapse, Running Out of Time is a running book about how we can, and must, always do more than we think is possible.

Callum Cant is a writer, ultra marathon runner and the author of Riding for Deliveroo. He is a postdoctoral researcher on workplace AI at the University of Oxford and was previously head of communications for Momentum.

How we Used Saint Etienne to Live

Ramzy Alwakeel

The essential guide to veteran British indie favourites Saint Etienne.

How We Used Saint Etienne to Live is the story of how these veteran crossover favourites have spent three decades making music out of memories — and how we made memories out of them. It’s a book about dreams in hearts and records in charts. It’s a tale that involves tape splicing, town planning, Now compilations and Saint Etienne’s biggest hit “He’s on the Phone”.

Using original interviews with all three band members, How We Used Saint Etienne to Live picks up the problems of nostalgia and history where their dreamlike 2021 album I’ve Been Trying To Tell You and their film festival at the BFI left off. It’s packed with facts, analysis and flights of fancy.

Ramzy Alwakeel is a British news journalist and music writer. His first book, Smile If You Dare: Politics and Pointy Hats with the Pet Shop Boys, was published by Repeater in 2016.
