Published to coincide with the first Olympic event for women's boxing, The Boxer's Heart is a brilliantly candid memoir of the world of women's boxing, now updated and with a new afterword. Written in raw and vivid style, it tells the story of how a young every-woman moves to New York City to write and, through struggles and disappointments in her personal life, rises through the ranks at the famed Gleason's gym to box professionally. Sekules's account unfolds with the pace and depth of a great novel, crammed with larger-than-life characters and piercing observations. any woman who has grappled with anger and trust in her relationships, been nagged by insecurity at the gym, or wondered what it feels like to throw a punch will identify with this witty and honest account of the "sweet science of bruising."
