Wes Lukowski, Booklist
"A fine rare book....This story is a classic, one of the standards against which I'll measure all other sports writing."
Glenn Stout, editor of The Best American Sports Writing
"No one has ever written so purely about Ali before. Indeed, perhaps no one has ever written so purely about anyone."
Tim Kawakami, Los Angeles Times
"What brilliant stories these are. Davis Miller writes profoundly and beautifully."
Joyce Carol Oates
"Miller's astounding book, more in the tradition of contemporary writers such as Tobias Wolff and Richard Ford than that of mere boxing biographies, is a seminal interpretation of fame, how it affects both those who have it and those who live in its shadow."
