About this title


Vikki LaMotta wrote her brutally honest life story 18 years ago but was so shocked by the finished manuscript she insisted it be withheld until after her death (she died in February, 2005). She describes a life lived among such celebrities as boxing champion Jake LaMotta, Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra, Sam Giancana, Robert De Niro and Hugh Hefner. It was a life marked by violence, sex and betrayal, but ultimately her story is one of personal triumph and fulfillment.

From the Inside Flap:

The story of Vikki LaMotta's life reads like a highlight reel from a television mini-series. Born into poverty. Raped at age fourteen. Pregnant and married at sixteen. Subjected to brutal beatings by her husband, world middleweight champion Jake LaMotta. Vikki left Jake, worked as a chorus girl to support three young children, was pursued by Frank Sinatra, and became romantically involved with mob boss Sam Giancana. At one time or another, she crossed paths with the likes of Babe Ruth, Jimmy Durante, Johnny Carson, and Robert DiNiro. At age 51, she posed nude for Playboy. The issue sold more copies to women than any issue of Playboy ever. Now Vikki’s story, written with acclaimed author Thomas Hauser, can be told.

Knockout is a straight-from-the-heart account of a life filled with sex and violence that ultimately became a survivor’s journey to redemption.
