Jack Munday has been fighting all his life. His early memories are shaped by the thrill of the boxing ring. Since then he has grown numb, scarred by his bullying father and haunted by the tragic fate of his first love. Now a grafting boxing manager, Jack is hungry for change. So when hope and ambition appear in the form of Frank, a young fighter with a winning prospect, and Georgie, a new girl who can match him step for step, Jack seizes his chance for a better future, determined to win at all costs. Inspired by the author’s boxing grandfather, the novel is at once a startlingly poignant exploration of love and family loyalty, and a proud evocation of the strength of relationships formed in a violent, ambitious, male-dominated world.

'I was knocked out by the depth of the emotional punches in this stunning debut novel.' Pamreader. 'This is a skilfully written and intelligent novel with multiple layers. For its vivid portrayal of another world, and its recounting of a story to break your heart, I highly recommend it.' Fiction Is Stranger Than Fact. 'A rich character piece, a dark story of obsession and sacrifice… History bleeds into the narrative… The tension is sustained to the end, and the writing never lapses into sentimentality.' Workshy Fop 'Bullock’s characterisation is sublime... An astonishing debut from an author whose star – I am sure – is set to rise.' Sweet Delights
