    Condition: Near Fine jacket
    Notes: 223 pages. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Climb inside the ring with a world-champion boxer for a behind-the-scenes look at Muhammad AliWriters 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 "Sting Like a Bee, 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 Jose Torres, a man who was a great boxer himself. When former light-heavyweight world champion Jose Torres traded in his gloves for a typewriter, boxing finally found its eyewitness. In this classic book, 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.
