This Sporting Life, Non-Fiction Bundle


This bundle doesn't attempt to include, or even be representative of, all sports. Instead, it focuses on great writing but also on showing sport in all its beauty and ugliness, glory and degradation.

This Sporting Life bundle includes:

*String Theory: David Foster Wallace On Tennis, by David Foster Wallace: Delve into one of the greatest literary minds as Wallace dissects the intricacies of tennis, blending philosophy, humour, and profound insights into this captivating sport.

*Football in Sun and Shadow, by Edouard Galeano: Through lyrical prose and poignant storytelling, Galeano captures the beauty, passion, and social significance of the world's most popular game, transcending boundaries and uniting cultures.

*The Fight, by Norman Mailer: This gripping narrative captures the raw intensity and emotional depth of the fight game, offering a powerful exploration of courage, sacrifice, and the human spirit. Get ready to be captivated by the heart-pounding action and unforgettable characters in this literary knockout.

*Kick the Latch, by Kathryn Scanlan : Based on transcribed interviews with Sonia, a horse trainer, the novel vividly captures the arc of one woman’s life at the racetrack—the flat land and ramshackle backstretch; the bad feelings and friction; the winner’s circle and the racetrack bar; the fancy suits and fancy boots.
