Hailed as “one of the greatest chroniclers of the mythical American outlaw life” (Entertainment Weekly), James Carlos Blake turns to the blazing story of Stanley Ketchel, the legendary ragtime-era middleweight boxing champion and daring rakehell, whose brief and meteoric life burned with violence and tragedy in and out of the ring. The Killings of Stanley Ketchel is a sweeping and powerful literary adventure by one of our most daring novelists.

“Probably the best boxing book ever written.” “Quite simply astonishing . . . a tale that resonates long after the last page is turned.” “A masterful story . . . impossible to resist . . . an absolute knockout.”
