A.J. Liebling's classic New Yorker pieces on the "sweet science of bruising" bring vividly to life the boxing world as it once was. It depicts the great events of boxing's American heyday: Sugar Ray Robinson's dramatic comeback, Rocky Marciano's rise to prominence, Joe Louis's unfortunate decline. Liebling never fails to find the human story behind the fight, and he evokes the atmosphere in the arena as distinctly as he does the goings-on in the ring--a combination that prompted Sports Illustrated to name The Sweet Science the best American sports book of all time
Just enough Liebling : classic work by the legendary New Yorker writer by A. J Liebling ( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born a hundred years ago, Abbott Joseph "Joe" Liebling was one of the greatest of all New Yorker writers, a colorful figure who helped set the magazine's urbane tone and style. Today he is best known as a celebrant of the "sweet science" of boxing, and as a "feeder" who ravishes the reader with his descriptions of food and wine." "Liebling is a most companionable figure, and to read the pieces in this book is to be swept along on an adventure in a world of confidence men, rogues, press barons, and political cronies, with an inimitable writer as one's guide."--BOOK JACKET

The telephone booth Indian by A. J Liebling ( Book )

A classic work on Broadway sharpers, grifters, and con men by the late, great New Yorker journalist A. J. Liebling. Often referred to as "Liebling lowlife pieces," the essays in The Telephone Booth Indian boisterously celebrate raffishness. A. J. Liebling appreciated a good scam and knew how to cultivate the scammers. Telephone Booth Indians (entrepreneurs so impecunious that they conduct business from telephone booths in the lobbies of New York City office buildings) and a host of other petty nomads of Broadway'with names like Marty the Clutch and Count de Pennies'are the protagonists in this incomparable Liebling work. In The Telephone Booth Indian, Liebling proves just why he was the go-to man on New York lowlife and con culture; this is the master at the top of his form, uncovering scam after scam and writing about them with the wit and charisma that established him as one of the greatest journalists of his generation and one of New York's finest cultural chroniclers
