Muhammad Ali the aging but irrepressible professor of boxing The other was George Foreman who was as taciturn as Ali was voluble Observing them was Norman Mailer a commentator of unparalleled energy

feints and stratagems and his sensitivity to their deeper symbolism makes this book a masterpiece of the literature of sport br br b Praise for i The Fight i b br i i br Exquisitely refined and

with money On the twenty fourth morning after the decampment of his wife Patty Lareine he awakens with a hangover considerable sexual excitement and on his upper arm a red tattoo bearing a name from the past Of the night before he remembers practically nothing What he soon learns is that the front passenger seat of his Porsche is soaked with blood and that in a secluded corner of his marijuana stash in a nearby woods rests a blonde head severed at the throat br Is Madden therefore a murderer He has no way of knowing As in many novels of crime the narrative centers on violence physical sexual and emotional but these elements move in their orbits through a rich constellation of character as Madden tries to reconstruct the missing hours of a terrible evening In the course of this in quiry a bizarre and vividly etched gallery of characters reappears to him as in a dream ex prizefighters sexual junkies mediums former cons a police chief a world weary former girl friend and Mad den s father old now but still a Herculean figure a practitioner of the sternest backroom ethics br Tough Guys Don t Dance represents Mailer at the peak of his powers with a stunningly conceived novel that soon transcends its origins as a mystery to become a relentless search into the recesses and buried virtues of the modern American male Rarely as many readers will discern have the paradoxes ofmachismo and homosexuality been so well explored
