Fighters & Writers, from Mongrel Empire Press, is a perfect gift for readers who share writers’ long-standing fascination with pugilism. In the essay collection, author John G. Rodwan, Jr., considers both the lively body of literature directly related to boxing as well as the ways boxing relates to writers not usually identified with it. The volume also includes personal essays involving boxing.

Essays in Fighters & Writers discuss works about boxing by authors such as Albert Camus, W.C. Heinz, A.J. Liebling, Norman Mailer, Joyce Carol Oates, George Plimpton, Philip Roth, New Yorker editor David Remnick, Darin Strauss and José Torres – a boxing champion who became a writer – as well as the cultural impact made by boxers like Muhammad Ali, Max Baer, James Braddock, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Joe Louis and Mike Tyson. Rodwan also considers the sport in connection with figures such as Martin Amis, Christopher Hitchens, John McCain, Ian McEwan, George Orwell, Henry Rollins and Oscar Wilde.
