On the day Tess is expecting to receive a new job offer/promotion she, instead, learns she has a sister & grandfather she knew nothing about. Suspenseful mysteries pop up and she finds a new direction in life...oh yeah, and love.
Easily one of my top 10 favorite books which Huston made into one of my top 10 movies. To refer to it as a book about boxing is to sell it short. It‘s about intersecting lives and how we occupy space with people at one time and then head out along our path. It‘s about brilliant dreams and our drab realities. It‘s a quick, concentrated, satisfying read.
