The Pugilist at Rest : And Other Stories, Paperback Book

The Pugilist at Rest : And Other Stories Paperback


Thom Jones's magnificent first collection of stories presents a brutal vision of the human condition, in a world without mercy or redemption.

The Pugilist at Rest gives us an America of Vietnam vets and ex-boxers, of bitter lovers in trailer parks, of lives passing in brilliant epileptic flickers. 'Thom Jones has stormed the scene like an angry doberman at a garden party.

He is shocking, he is gorgeous . . . A voice so relentless and felonious at once that you ought to need a permit to carry it.' Boston Globe
