Update: This is an audio book on CD only. This does not come with a copy of an “actual” book. Bonus: no papercuts!
Our man Eugene Robinson—you know him as the dude who choked you out at the Oxbow show—has been threatening to write a fight book for some time now, and the good folks at HarperCollins finally told him to put his mouth where their money was. the result is FIGHT: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Ass-Kicking But Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked For Asking, a black-eyed, split-lipped, bloody-knuckled journey into the black heart of the fistic arts—from Ultimate Fighting, underground fight clubs and kickboxing to soccer hooliganism, vicious “rock n’ roll” prison-cell combat, and good old-fashioned bar brawls.
The best part is that we managed to convince him (actually, it didn’t take much convincing) to record an audio version of FIGHT for release on 2xCD. The tapes he sent us play out like Ray Liotta’s voiceover from Goodfellas transposed across a series of merciless, technically proficient beatings—only without all the messy coke scenes and, like, antipasto. Come get some.
