Publisher Description

Thomas Hauser’s annual collections have been avidly anticipated from the time A Beautiful Sickness was published by the University of Arkansas Press in 2001 until his most recent collection, Boxing Is . . . , was named a 2010 Best Sports Book of the Year by Booklist, which has called Hauser “the current champ in boxing literature.” Sportswriter Donald McRae recently wrote, “Thomas Hauser has become boxing’s indispensable writer with a stream of books and internet columns that strip away the layers of intrigue to reveal a seamy but addictive world. Whether writing Muhammad Ali’s biography, or shredding boxing’s power brokers, Hauser instills passion and gravitas into his work.” Winks and Daggers continues that tradition with Hauser’s writing from 2010. Hauser brings readers into Manny Pacquiao’s intimate circle in the moments before last year’s two biggest fights. His award-winning investigative journalism exposes the inner workings of HBO Sports and examines the use of performance-enhancing drugs in boxing. There’s a look back in time at Rocky Marciano and Sugar Ray Leonard. And there’s much more in this latest collection in the series that has become, according to reviewer Bart Barry, “an essential part of boxing’s official record and the chronicles of this era most likely to endure.”
