Joey: An Extraordinary Life & A Dream Fulfilled
By Scott Russell
In Joey, Scott Russell has captured the mood and the feel of an America long past. It’s a world so gritty that you can almost feel the blows emotional and physical – that pummel the hero on virtually every page.
Make no mistake, this is not Rocky VII. These are not cartoon characters that conform to the timeworn clichés of a sport currently on life support.
This is an evocative story of a man who fought for everything he got, an everyman who survived the only way he knew how, with his fists. It is a story that doesn’t end neatly, with a penultimate knockout in the ring. Lives are seldom that simple. They extend well beyond our fields of glory.
This is a story of a man who could have been broken by life, but wasn’t. Strange then that it is also a love story – and a damn good one.
