Southpaw
amazon.co.uk
A young Scottish boxer breaks away from the shackles of his environment only to find himself mixed up with heroin smuggling in Asia. A story of violence, prison, fear and desperation, which leads to inner reflection and finally redemption. Fear and loathing in a drug induced stupor with a helter skelter ride from hell and back, this book will change the face of British fiction.Southpaw is one of the most insightful novels I have ever read. This young mans journey is a dark scary look at life in the underbelly of society. His use of dialect, patios, argot and vernacular entwine the reader in a dizzy eloquent spell of literary legerdemain. Lulling us into the life of a protagonist who stumbles from saint to sinner as he embarks on a terrifying odyssey of self discovery. A ghetto Einstein with who is forced to come to terms with a lifetime behind bars in a Bangkok hell hole. This deep profound study of the human condition encompasses the teachings of the greatest spiritual leaders, and forces us to look deep inside our own inner being and search for answers that have haunted mankind since the beginning of time. Who are weand why are we here.?Southpaw is a rich and deeply compelling novel which time and time again brings the reader face to face with the nature of the human condition. Here, exposed for all to read, are human beings caught in their moments of extremity.This is not a sober, contemplative book, such as we look for when we take down a volume of Tolstoy. Nor will this story provide an answer to those essential questions about humanity about life or death that have preoccupied the human race for so many millennia. Here is no easy blueprint for surviving the cold truths of universal entropy no quick guide to deliverance from the darkness that surrounds our fragile and momentary existence on this planet.But what you will find here is a heart wrenching story that will assist you as you grapple with those inexplicable forces of darkness, as you confront destruction, debilitation, misdirection, inappropriateness and plain fucking bad luck.  read more

Southpaw: Short Stories
amazon.co.uk
Since the publication of Keepers of the House, which won the Somerset Maugham award in 1982, Lisa St Aubin de Teran has produced poetry, stories, novels and memoirs. In this collection of short stories, there are none of the early Borges' macho gauchos, only workers, prostitutes and troubled sons and daughters of South America. Magical realism, never easy to define, is partially but effectively summed up in the third tale, "Zapa. the fire child who looked like a toad": "[L]a Ciega was ... also a realist, he knew that even miracles had to be paid for; only calamity was free." This conflation of the harsh, basic realities of life (sun, family, death, landscape, work) and the strange and significant understandings apparently inherent in beans, orange trees, dirt tracks and dead rails lead these stories to a wide variety of conclusions. There are jokes, ghosts, rich and poor in the Barrios; literally, everything under the sun. The prose is clean storytelling, lending itself to be read aloud. And if the emotional impact is sometimes lost in the tales' weary voice, this may be the result of the delicate balance of a reality where magic is one of the easier--more sensible--ways of understanding both people and events. --John Shire  read more

amazon.co.uk
In this stunning memoir, Jacqueline Stuckey shares that regardless of a life dominated by parental and partner mental and physical abuse, teen pregnancies, addiction, phobias and anxiety, she came back from the brink of desperation, renewed her own strength and reclaimed a positive productive life beyond her wildest dreams. She restored her life.Her story is an inspiration for anyone who has been knocked down and wonders if its even worth getting up again. Few people have been knocked down as hard and as often as Jackie was from the time she was a little girl and a promising athlete. If you want a little inspiration, you need to read this book. David R. Nelson, Chair, Communication Department, University of Colorado, Colorado SpringsA graphic insight to the devastating effect of growing up under the so called care of alcoholics, Jackie doesnt just pull the curtain back, she rips it completely off the rail exposing the effects of abuse and neglect. Her courage and resourcefulness, even when she doubted herself and those around her, demonstrates the power of faith in oneself and in a higher power. Oftentimes when we are faced with problems such as physical and mental abuse, incarceration, mental, physical ailments, emotional illnesses or death, we feel that those obstacles are insurmountable and we just cannot continue. Well, allow me to share with you that thats exactly when we should just keep pushing forward! The question that begs to be answered at that point is: Will it be easy? The answer is a resounding NO but it IS DOABLE! It just takes the power of MUCH prayer, perseverance, determination and a great deal of RESILIENCE! Jacqueline Stuckey  read more

The Southpaw (RosettaBooks Sports Classics Book 6)
amazon.co.uk
With The Southpaw, novelist Mark Harris begins the remarkable saga of a gifted baseball pitcher named Henry W. Wiggen, which would unfold in four novels over the course of some 27 years between the publication of The Southpaw (1952) and It Looked Like For Ever (1979). Harris frames The Southpaw in an irresistible way, letting the fictional hero Wiggen "tell" his own story in the vernacular--bad grammar, run-on sentences, the works. In fact, the title page tells the reader that The Southpaw is "by Henry W. Wiggen / Punctuation freely inserted and spelling greatly improved by Mark Harris."Henry Wiggen is a beautiful athlete, but despite his talents and his natural grace, the unpretentious small-town boy reaches manhood by the same arduous route followed by most boys, complicated in his case by that very talent and grace, and the expectations they create in everyone. Wiggen is that rarest of fiction heroes, a certifiable good guy, without guile, who wants always to do the right thing. Even for him, the challenges posed by personal and professional needs sometimes seem to be too much, as the stakes in his career steadily rise. The Southpaw follows Wiggen from his early days all the way to the World Series, a winning story of a good man living an extraordinary life."By far the best 'serious' baseball novel published," the San Francisco Chronicle wrote of The Southpaw--a critical response that is frequently echoed in discussions of all four of Mark Harris' novels about Henry Wiggen. The Southpaw defines Wiggen, and Harris wields his vivid, stream of conscious style with wizardly skill. The acid test is whether the experience of The Southpaw encourages the reader to follow Wiggen's saga in Bang the Drum Slowly. Invariably, it does.ABOUT THE AUTHORMark Harris (1922) wrote novels for more than fifty years. He is best known for four novels about the life of major-league baseball player Henry W. Wiggen, including The Southpaw (1953) and Bang the Drum Slowly (1956) He also wrote the screenplay for the film version of Bang the Drum Slowly. In 1946, Harris made a splash with his first novel Trumpet to the World, a book about a young black soldier who married a white woman. Many of Harris's other novels have dealt with academic life, and yet more of his novels are highly informed by autobiographical experience. Harris has also published a collection of his articles entitled Short Work of It, as well as the play Friedman and Son and a unique biography of Saul Bellow.  read more

Southpaws & Sunday Punches and Other Sporting Expressions
amazon.co.uk
Some 600 words and phrases from the world of sports that are now part of the vernacular. Terms from baseball, boxing, football, basketball, hockey, cricket and rugby pepper the English language, whether the subject is war (a maneuver in the Gulf War was called a "hail Mary play") to love (she's on the rebound). Baseball has given us southpaw, go to bat, coming out of left field, playing hardball. Boxers had to go the distance unless they were saved by the bell. And kingpins were the prime targets for bowlers. This Hall of Fame collection gives sports lovers a ringside seat on the inside track. Only an oddball who doesn't know the score would stay on the sidelines or take a rain check.  read more
