STRONG BOY The Life and Times of John L. Sullivan, America's First Sports Hero

by | Read by Joe Barrett

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Say the name John L. Sullivan, and even many non-boxing fans will recognize the champion as a vanguard in the sport at the end of the nineteenth century. Joe Barrett's narration brings this larger-than-life character to the mind's eye of the listener with a wonderfully gruff, Irish-New England accent. Author Christopher Klein captures much about this man--and there's a lot not to like--but it's Barrett who embraces Sullivan's voice in an animated way. That effort makes STRONG BOY a great marriage of scholarship and narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
