Summary: From the acclaimed author of Dino comes a brilliant biography of the man who embodied menace for midcentury America. Sonny Liston was the anti-Ali, a boxer whose strength needed no gloss. THE DEVIL & SONNY LISTON is a brutal & stunning illumination that digs into the darkest corners of police files, fight tapes, Congressional investigations, & the memories of those who know how to reveal the true course of Liston's story. Beginning with his birth into a huge family on a modern plantation, the story follows Lipton's criminal life & imprisonment, a fight career under the scarcely concealed control of the mobsters who ran boxing, & ends with the truth about his mysterious death in Las Vegas. Written with a passionate intensity & an unrivaled knowledge of the workings of organized crime, THE DEVIL & SONNY LISTON is an instant classic of American biography by one of America's finest writers.
