Klappentext: Climb inside the ring with a world-champion boxer for a behind-the-scenes look at Muhammad Ali
Writers have long been attracted to boxing. Hemingway, Mailer, Algren, Plimpton, Oates, and many others have stepped into the ring--at least in spirit--to give voice to an otherwise wordless sport, to celebrate that "sweet science," and to bear witness to its romance and tragedy. In this acclaimed book, hailed by Norman Mailer as an "impressive event," we are brought for the first time into the ring for a close-up look at the "manly art" through the eyes of José Torres, a man who was a great boxer himself. When former light-heavyweight world champion José Torres traded in his gloves for a typewriter, boxing finally found its eyewitness.
In the classic Sting Like a Bee, Torres turns his well-trained eye on one of the most celebrated and controversial athletes of all time: Muhammad Ali. In this penetrating view of Ali and the world of prizefighting, told by a true insider and "boxing's Renaissance man," Torres delivers exciting and explicit accounts of all of Ali's major fights with the cool authenticity of one who has lived it.
". . . Acrid, penetrating, a book fuming with the ammonia of the prize ring and the psychic steam of champions."
"Marvelous . . . it is a study of the psychic contest that in boxing is the hidden part of the iceberg."
--The New York Times
