5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best!, 9 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At the Fights: American Writers on Boxing (Library of America) (Hardcover)
Quite simply this is the best sports anthology I have ever come across!And if boxing writing is your thing then I cannot recommend it highly enough.I had previously come across some of the articles in the collection but re-reading them only enhanced my enjoyment as I had forgotten just how good sports writing can be.
At the Fights: American Writers on BoxingIf you haven't got it get it! If you have it then buy another copy for your favourite sports enthusiast!

5.0 out of 5 stars A weighty tome!, 12 April 2011
This review is from: At the Fights: American Writers on Boxing (Library of America) (Hardcover)
This is a genuinely impressive collection of great boxing writing over the last century - a great mix of styles and content. Not one to read in one sitting, but hugely enjoyable to dip in and out of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating - not just for boxing fans, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb collection of 20th Century writing on American boxing. There are the big hitters here (Norman Mailer), and a host of lesser known but equally gifted journalists. The styles range from 50s noir, to reportage, to hard bitten gumshoe style - all very atmospheric. A fascinating portrait of the art of boxing, it's greatest proponents, forgotten heroes, and of America's social history. Recommended
