The Fight (Penguin Modern Classics)
The Fight (Penguin Modern Classics)
by Norman Mailer
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant..., 2 Nov 2009
Having watched the dvd When We Were Kings and having enjoyed in particular the verbal contributions from Norman Mailer, I had to buy this book. I wasnt disappointed.... right from the very first paragraph in which Mailer describes what it feels like for mere mortals to be in the presence of Ali, the book doesnt fail to deliver on every front. Like the dvd, even though you know the outcome of the fight, the narrative still grips you, and thanks to the prose of Mailer, the whole journey is a pleasure. Buy it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring., 28 Jan 2009
Being a regular viewer of Danny Gregory's Blog, plus an owner of his
other published works, I was really looking forward to this, and the first thing that hit me when it arrived, was the size of it...
...it's a BIG book, but you are not disappointed when you open it. Its a wonderful insight into the journals and sketchbooks of a wide variety of very different artists. Printed on lovely uncoated stock, the illustrations and editorials throughout provide hours of enjoyment. I cant stop picking it up!
