On Bullfighting, Paperback


Bullfighting - the ultimate spectator sport. Acclaimed novelist A. L. Kennedy unpeels the layers and explains the mechanics before dissecting them with surgical precision.

Beyond the theatre, the costume and the well-worn plot she focuses on the fact that a man faces his death while a crowd looks on.

The result is a startling confrontation with her own, and mankind's, mortality.
