The Harder They Fall
In Budd Schulberg's classic novel about boxing's corrupt underworld, naïve newcomer Toro Molina is set up to hit the mat like no one else"Toro" Molina certainly looks the part. He's built like the Minotaur, but few would guess at the fear consuming the Argentine farmer and former circus performer after he's brought to the United States to be the next heavyweight champion of the world. The problem is that Molina can't box at all. But monstrous fight promoter Nick Latka fixes every fight on the way to the championship, and builds Toro's renown with the help of cynical sports journalist Ed Lewis and a host of lackeys. First published in 1947, The Harder They Fall stands as a powerful exposé of professional boxing by one of the sport's true poet laureates. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
