about

A work of historical fiction centered around the life and loves of Max Baer. A real-life American heavyweight champion boxer from the 1930s, Baer was part Jewish and wore a Star of David on his boxing shorts while fighting boxers from Axis countries. The background of the cover design is a page from the bible detailing Solomon’s Song, a recurrent theme in the story.
