Summary
In 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaire, two African American boxers were paid five million dollars apiece to fight each other. One was Muhammad Ali, the aging but irrepressible 1professor of boxing.2 The other was George Foreman, who was as taciturn as Ali was voluble. Observing them was Norman Mailer, a commentator of unparalleled energy, acumen, and audacity. Whether he is analyzing the fighters2 moves, interpreting their characters, or weighing their competing claims on the African and American souls, Mailer2s grasp of the titanic battle2s feints and stratagems, and his sensitivity to their deeper symbolism, makes this book a masterpiece of the literature of sport
