The Harder They Fall

The Harder They Fall Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Budd Schulberg's celebrated novel of the prize ring has lost none of its power since its first publication almost fifty years ago. Crowded with unforgettable characters, it is a relentless expose of the fight racket. A modern Samson in the form of a simple Argentine peasant is ballyhooed by an unscrupulous fight promoter and his press agent - and then betrayed and destroyed by connivers. Mr. Schulberg creates a wonderfully authentic atmosphere for this book that many critics hailed as even better than What Makes Sammy Run? The wrongs of the boxing business that the book illuminates are still with us.

Synopsis:

The celebrated novel of the prize ring that has lost none of its power since its first publication almost fifty years ago. The quintessential novel of boxing and corruption. --USA Today
