Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuaron has a new project lined up. According to CNN, he will be directing the adaptation of the book “The Memory of Running” by Ron McLarty. The novel, which is “the story of a 42-year-old alcoholic’s quest for redemption on a bicycle trip across America”, was helped into publication by fellow author and Potter fan Stephen King. King first wrote about the book in his column for Entertainment Weekly in 2003 where he said “‘The Memory of Running’ is the best novel you won’t read this year,” King wrote in the opening sentence. “So why can’t you read it? Because — so far, at least — no publisher will touch it with a 10-foot pole.”
