Abstract:

"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."--Jacket.
