    The review here by Andy Seven provides a very succinct outline of this hard to find book s quirky charm Young, fresh out of prison tough guy Bobby Fallon trains to become a boxer in a prototypical sweaty, grungy city gym meanwhile greeting his gorgeous half Native American mother, after said stint in the slam, with a prodigious boner straining against his pants, a hard greeting that doesn t embarrass mom in the slightest With Bobby taking out his burning issues regarding mother and her current The review here by Andy Seven provides a very succinct outline of this hard to find book s quirky charm Young, fresh out of prison tough guy Bobby Fallon trains to become a boxer in a prototypical sweaty, grungy city gym meanwhile greeting his gorgeous half Native American mother, after said stint in the slam, with a prodigious boner straining against his pants, a hard greeting that doesn t embarrass mom in the slightest With Bobby taking out his burning issues regarding mother and her current boyfriend du jour and abandoning, sparkle eyed Irish father on his sparring partners, it s only a matter of time before mom makes the move on sonny boy after too many holiday drinks and a bout of spirited role playing Don t call me Mom, call me Kate in a scene that Hamill somehow manages to makeerotic than icky After this initial shame and lust inducing seduction, well, you know things are going to rush headlong towards disaster and so it is that, in the final stretch, we find Bobby fighting a syndicate bruiser in Las Vegas, with his frisky off and on bed partner Mom and I m back and stillrakishly smiling Dad figuring into the rope a dope drama.Hamill occasionally strains too hard in chapping his characters and stumbles awkwardly into bathos, but he is still a capable crafter of seamy and meaty glimpses into the city s underbelly and Flesh and Blood is a satisfying if occasionally ludicrous foray into the gritty world of pulp by way of blue collar boxing, booze, and incest Long out of print, but worth it for a fun ride if you find a copy available

    Kinda pulpy novel about a golden boy boxer who reunites with his hot young Navajo MILF mom Everything s clover until he gets jealous every time he sees Mom in the arms of another boxing pimp They finally make the scene near the end of the book The greatest sports incest book ever written P.S If you ever get a chance to see the TV movie starring Tom Berenger and Suzanne Pleshette, don t It s very bad.

    Please, whatever you do, DO NOT give a moment s thought to the ridiculous, adolescent fever dreams some reviewers have seen fit to ascribe to Pete Hamill s Flesh and Blood Especially egregious is the inexplicable drivel currently heading the Pete Hamill Flesh and Blood opening page on this site 17 OCT 2019 Blond blue eyed Bobby Fallon Por favor.While there is, in the novel, an extremely difficult dynamic between mother and son which possesses an oppressive, longstanding sexual elem Please, whatever you do, DO NOT give a moment s thought to the ridiculous, adolescent fever dreams some reviewers have seen fit to ascribe to Pete Hamill s Flesh and Blood Especially egregious is the inexplicable drivel currently heading the Pete Hamill Flesh and Blood opening page on this site 17 OCT 2019 Blond blue eyed Bobby Fallon Por favor.While there is, in the novel, an extremely difficult dynamic between mother and son which possesses an oppressive, longstanding sexual element, it is examined deftly and with Mr Hamill s customary compassion and insight, and this dynamic is every bit as troubling to the characters involved as it is to the reader.Flesh and Blood is the story of a conflicted working class young man haunted by a punishing past His hard won pugilistic skills lead him from prison into a realm only a short remove from the harshness and mistreatment that has informed much of his existence to now He has heart, character, and the courage to hope for better days than he has known, but is faced with putting certain demons to rest before he can move forward and breathe free The aforementioned mother son dynamic obviously falls into that category Unexamined rage, largely associated with the failings of his absentee father and their many consequences, is another issue young Bobby Fallon must confront, lest he be destroyed by it.Be aware that the novel is as much about the fight game itself with all its savage energy, backroom politics, greed, and heart stopping physical grace as it is about Bobby s attempt to navigate his way to a life of quality and perhaps some portion of joy, where love is a thing that liberates heart and mind instead of choking them off in the darkness of emotional desperation You might want to read the two measured, highly personal reviews of the novel featured on .com as of this writing Not the few sophomoric toss offs located nearby You ll know the ones to which I refer when you see them The reviewers to whom I point both understand that this is one of the author s finest feats of storytelling and characterization They know that a thoughtful reader comes away from Flesh and Bloodchangedby its uncommon depth, intelligence, and astonishing rough beauty.The novel is concerned with human beings and how and why they strive where they find their opportunities and how they play them out how they manage the realities that cannot be undone and how they ultimately orient themselves toward the people shaping the substance of their lives, along with the costs and gains attendant to the decisions they make.As an aside here I only registered on this site about an hour ago expressly to suggest that readers interested in the book summarily dismiss irresponsible, misleading, and puerile synopses centered on an illicit sex fest which simply does not appear in the novel.Pete Hamill deserves better than that

    Well written coming of age, boxing, dysfunctional family saga told as only Hammil can Gets a little weird and depressing, but an important work if you are a Pete Hammil fan.

    It is about a young Irish guy who would like to become a rich guy by earning on his inborn talent and strength There was the time of discrimination between white and black guys.

    I have read Pete Hamil before and always liked his books, so I was disappointed with this book But maybe it is because it seems to meof a man s book.
