Description The Fight de Norman Mailer:

In 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaire, two African American boxers were paid five million dollars apiece to fight each other. One was Muhammad Ali, the aging but irrepressible professor of boxing. The other was George Foreman, who was as taciturn as Ali was voluble. Observing them was Norman Mailer, a commentator of unparalleled energy, acumen, and audacity. Whether he is analyzing the fighters moves, interpreting their characters, or weighing their competing claims on the African and American souls, Mailer s grasp of the titanic battle s feints and stratagems and his sensitivity to their deeper symbolism makes this book a masterpiece of the literature of sport. Praise for "The Fight" "" Exquisitely refined and attenuated . . . [a] sensitive portrait of an extraordinary athlete and man, and a pugilistic drama fully as exciting as the reality on which it is based. "The New York Times" One of the defining texts of sports journalism. Not only does Mailer recall the violent combat with a scholar s eye . . . he also makes the whole act of reporting seem as exciting as what s occurring in the ring. "GQ" Stylistically, Mailer was the greatest boxing writer of all time. Chuck Klosterman, "Esquire" One of Mailer s finest books. Louis Menand, "The New Yorker" Praise for Norman Mailer [Norman Mailer] loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation. "The New York Times" A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent. "The New Yorker" Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure. "The Washington Post" A devastatingly alive and original creative mind. "Life" Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance. "The New York Review of Books" The largest mind and imagination [in modern] American literature . . . Unlike just about every American writer since Henry James, Mailer has managed to grow and become richer in wisdom with each new book. "Chicago Tribune" Mailer is a master of his craft. His language carries you through the story like a leaf on a stream. "The Cincinnati Post"" Born in 1923 in Long Branch, New Jersey, and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Norman Mailer was one of the most influential writers of the second half of the twentieth century and a leading public intellectual for nearly sixty years. He is the author of more than thirty books. "The Castle in the Forest, " his last novel, was his eleventh "New York Times" bestseller. His first novel, "The Naked and the Dead, "has never gone out of print. His 1968 nonfiction narrative, "The Armies of the Night, " won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He won a second Pulitzer for "The Executioner s Song" and is the only person to have won Pulitzers in both fiction and nonfiction. Five of his books were nominated for National Book Awards, and he won a lifetime achievement award from the National Book Foundation in 2005. Mr. Mailer died in 2007 in New York City."
