9788842219828: New York Shots: A Boxing Tale

New York Shots is the story of Italians in America, seen through their successes, defeats and battles, inside and outside the ring. The author adopts a disjointed, narrative and critical approach with the explicit aim of bringing different energy forms together and creating unison between the words, and experiences, of champions past and present and those of intellectuals celebrated by New York and America over the years. The result is an intimate and passionate ballad describing New York, the golden age of boxing and those who, more than all others, practised, promoted and made it legendary - the Italo-Americans. This book demonstrates that boxing remains a place that produces myth, a sacred space that can civilise us, basically, "one of the fine arts" (Walter Pater). The story is narrated also by the photographs of the maestro Howard Schatz and the words of the screenwriter and character in the cult American TV series The Sopranos, Michael Imperioli.
