Product description

Review

“Every once in a while an astounding new talent makes its presence felt on the literary stage. Antonia Logue is undoubtedly one of these talents.”
Toronto Star

“A fearless excursion into the nature of passion, through the blood-sports of boxing, poetry, and art.…A work of astonishing acuity.”
–Merilyn Simonds

Shadow-Box achieves the delicate alchemical reaction by which brute reality is converted into glittering, fictional gold.”
The Times (U.K.)

“An exuberant, audacious debut…”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“She floors the reader in the first seconds and lets you get up only to dazzle you with dancing and floating, feinting and impeccable combinations.”
Globe and Mail

“Immediately engrossing.…Its impact, like the best poetry or a powerful left hook, is visceral, intense, and enduring.”
Time Out New York

“Logue’s sentences fulminate with vigour and assurance. . . . [She] has a fluid, wide-ranging pen and creates hard-assed fight scenes as easily as languid recall of lovers’ first meetings.”
The Observer (U.K.)

“This is a furious novel about fighters and poets, fists and decadence, art and rage.…The humming, floating, stinging energy of her Jack Johnson pages suggest that Logue is a natural writer.…Logue knows how to carve a sentence packed with gusto. . . .”
–Montreal Gazette

“Ambitious and wide-ranging.…An enjoyable and entertaining novel.…”
Times Literary Supplement

“Imaginatively conceived and elegantly executed.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Remarkable.…”
Booklist (starred review)

“Logue’s writing is boldly descriptive and strikingly true.…With Shadow-Box Antonia Logue has given us a story that is exciting, significant, and beautifully told.”
Uptown Magazine

“A mesmerizing, beautifully written story…”
Sunday Independent (U.K.)

“…Outstanding.…Any writer who can blend boxing and undying love, Dadaism and racism, mad desire and maddening loneliness to such remarkable effect is certainly one to watch.”
Scotland on Sunday

“Ambitious…[Antonia Logue] has raised some interesting questions about the balance between great art and life, and the price always mercilessly extracted.”
-The Irish Times
