Every Time I Talk to Liston

Every Time I Talk to Liston

(2004)
A novel by

 
Aging Amos "Scrap Iron" Fletcher has finally made it to Vegas, only to lose his first big-league fight and be falsely accused of selling secrets to his sparring partner's opponent. So he heads back to Trenton and hooks up with TNT, a reckless but kindhearted young boxer who's also down on his luck. With a little help from the spirit of Sonny Liston, Amos trains TNT for a series of high-profile fights and launches a daring gambit to reclaim his own reputation.
Brian DeVido is a former Virginia Golden Gloves heavyweight champion and two-time finalist. His boxing fiction has appeared in Words of Wisdom and Aethlon: The Journal of Sports Literature, and he has been a sportswriter for the San Antonio Express News and the Roanoke Times. He currently lives in Washington, D.C.
"DeVido, at his best when showing men tell stories about themselves with their bodies, pulls off the tricky feat of using boxing action to express character. He also nails the complexity of transactions between fighters and reporters."- New York Times Book Review
"This is a true page-turner...[Every Time I Talk to Liston] presents the most balanced look at the life of Sonny Liston I've ever come across. Liston's voice comes through loud and clear."-Rocky Mountain News
