    The Long Walk by Richard Bachman you may know him better as Stephen (every time I take a shit a 700 page book falls out) King.Granted i have never read the HG but the premise seems similar.

       @vegascable I think you’re wrong, Richard Bachman was that guitar player who wrote “Takin’ Care of Business”
