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

12 editions published between 1942 and 2004 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

11 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
