Synopsis: A diverse collection, complete with all the drama and excitement of a championship bout.
From the Back Cover:
The Greatest Boxing Stories Ever Told delivers a knockout collection of not only the best writing ever penned on the subject of “the sweet science,” but also stories that relate to the larger human issues this brutal sport has come to symbolize and embody. Whether the tale is about the
triumph of a heroic champion, a tragic death in the ring, the shady tactics of fight promoters, or victories against seemingly impossible odds, each story in this varied collection connects with the sort of powerful punch one can only expect from the past century’s most talented and celebrated writers of both fiction and nonfiction. Included in these pages are contributions from:
Damon Runyon · Rod Serling · Ring Lardner · Dashiell Hammett
W. C. Heinz · Jack London · A.J. Liebling · Joyce Carol Oates
Norman Mailer · Ralph Ellison · George Plimpton · Pete Hamill
Jimmy Cannon · Jim Murray · Red Smith · Nellie Bly · Paul Gallico
Robert M. Lipsyte · Gene Tunney · Clarence Riordan · Homer
William Hazlitt · Frank Deford · Irwin Shaw · Heywood Broun · Mark Kram.
This collection is perfect for fight fans and non-fight fans alike, and with its all-star lineup of “contenders” throwing “haymakers” and “uppercuts” in every round, it stands as the definitive volume of short stories on this enduring pugilistic pastime.
