Editorial Reviews

Review

"A document of life lived in the center of hell." —Sports Illustrated


"When they come to list the greatest boxers, Hurrican's name isn't likely to pop up in the Top 10. But when they come to list the greatest figures of the 20th century, he'll be alone at the peak." —Boston Globe


"A shocking, savage and brilliant indictment of racial injustice and the inhumanity of the prison." —Globe and Mail


"Carter's scorching and poetic autobiography." —Toronto Sun

About the Author

In 1974, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter's autobiography, THE 16th ROUND was published by Viking. Written from prison, Carter chronicled the twisted events that took him from world middleweight boxing contender to his life sentence as the accused murderer of three people in a New Jersey bar. Joan Baez, Muhammad Ali and Roberta Flack protested his innocence, and Bob Dylan wrote his classic anthem "Hurricane" about Carter's struggle. But it took the determined efforts of a group of Canadians, including Sam Chaiton and Terry Swinton to free Rubin Carter.
