"A genuinely impressive debut. Boxer Handsome does everything great fiction should...revealing a world that most people will never even think about. If you can't see what it is that people need from boxing, or why it somehow persists into the 21st century, then read this." (Guardian). Boxing runs in Bobby's blood. His Irish dad was a boxer. So was his Jewish grandfather. Yanked up by their collars at Clapton Bow Boys Club, taught how to box and stay out of trouble. So Bobby knows he shouldn't be messing in street brawls a week before his big fight with Connor 'the Gypsy Boy', an Irish traveller from around the way. They're fighting over Theresa: a traveller girl with Connor's name all over her. But Bobby's handsome, like his dad; boxer handsome. For Bobby, the ring is everywhere and he can't afford to lose.

Bold, ballsy and blood-spattered, a fierce debut about boxer boys in the East End of London, from a major new talent
