A Rough and Tumble Life
Douglas Century reflects on the life of the great Jewish boxer Barney Ross. He grew up in a tough Chicago neighborhood, and lived through his father’s murder and his mother’s nervous breakdown before dabbling in small-scale crime and finally becoming a championship boxer. The new biography Barney Ross is part of the Jewish Encounters series.
