To my mind, this is Norman Mailer's masterpiece. This slim book holds within it's pages one of the most exciting narratives I've ever read, depicting the 1974 fight between underdog Muhammad Ali, trying to regain his heavyweight title, and the Godzilla monster that was George Foreman. The build-up, the fight and its aftermath are all depicted with edge-of-the-seat prose that is infectious and will have you breathless even if you already know the conclusion. ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum
