On the Topic of Fighting

He's holding the manuscript so close to his chest that we've ceased prying at it...but no worry, we're sure what he's written is great. And based upon the ranking the book has on Amazon we'd say there is a slew of folks who feel the same. Its #2 in Extreme Sports and #9 in Boxing, and the damn thing isn't out for another 2 1/2 months! It's written by Oxbow's own Eugene Robinson, is called "Fight: Or, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking" and we're told (yeah, since he won't let us read it we just have to take his word for it) its packed with interviews with some true warrior motherfuckers as well as personal anecdotes from over the years...if any of you have read Oxbow's newsletters you probably have a bit of an idea what you are in for with this book.

In the meanwhile, as you wait for mid-November to deliver "Fight", you can check out a teaser of sorts courtesy of "Bouncer Lit", James Parker's recent piece for the Boston Phoenix which features Eugene, amongst others, discussing bouncing and, you guessed it....fighting.
