Fifteen previously unpublished boxing pieces written between 1952 and 1963.
Demonstrating A.J. Liebling?s abiding passion for the ?sweet science? of boxing, "A Neutral Corner" brings together fifteen previously unpublished pieces written between 1952 and 1963. Antic, clear-eyed, and wildly entertaining, these essays showcase a" The New Yorker" journalist at the top of his form. Here one relives the high drama of the classic Patterson-Johansson championship bout of 1959, and Liebling?s early prescient portrayal of Cassius Clay?s style as a boxer and a poet is not to be missed.
Liebling always finds the human story that makes these essays appealing to aficionados of boxing and prose alike. Alive with a true fan?s reverence for the sport, yet balanced by a true skeptic?s disdain for sentiment, "A Neutral Corner "is an American treasure.
