Leonard Gardner
Fat City
1969

Gardner paints an unromantic picture of the lives of two working-class boxers in Stockton, California. With echoes of Steinbeck and glimpses of Raymond Carver, the clean, spare prose beautifully reveals the bleak struggles of an entire class--trainers, wives, fieldhands, barflies. The result is a panorama that is multifaceted and vibrant.
