"This novel is the sort that grabs the reader by the collar, letting go only after its finish . . . a work of high-energy artistic expression."--Hisham Bustani, author of The Perception of Meaning
"For fans of tough, lean writing . . . The novel follows Saed, an office worker whose life is transformed by boxing. A searing examination of sport and social class, this will appeal to a wide range of readers."--Marcia Lynx Qualey, The National
"It was refreshing to see boxing described through the eyes of a different culture; to discover how it sits with social norms; to discover how, ultimately, winning, losing, competition and obsession transcend the language barrier and mean the same no matter where you are in the world. . . detailed in lean, direct and muscular prose and includes some surprisingly profound messages â$e musings on boxing, what it means to be a boxer, what it means to watch boxing--that creep up on you as the drama unfolds."--Boxing News
