In The Greatest Boxing Stories Ever Told, editor Jeff Silverman 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 the brutal sport has come to symbolize and embody. Whether the story be 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. The Greatest Boxing Stories is the perfect gift 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. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 368 pages) Jeff Silverman, a former columnist for The Los Angeles Herald Examiner, has written for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and several national magazines.
