When Dick Francis decided he wanted to write a novel, he didn't know where to start. After all, he had been a professional racing driver for more than twenty years, and he had never attempted to write a novel before. So he turned to the one person who could help him--his old friend and racing teammate, Francis Ford Coppola.

Francis Ford Coppola told Dick Francis that he needed to first develop a clear vision for his novel before he could start writing. Dick Francis followed Coppola's advice and developed a vision for his novel, a story about a young man who is chosen to compete in the Formula One Grand Prix.

The novel was a success and won Dick Francis several awards, including a prestigious Pulitzer Prize. Decider is a thrilling story about a young man's quest for fame and glory.; 8vo; 278 pages; Signed by Author.
