On Bullfighting




The paperback edition of AL Kennedy's highly acclaimed reflections on the bloodiest of the blood sports. 'AS ARTFUL AS A MATADOR'S FINAL PASS' Esquire

Acclaimed novelist A.L.Kennedy unpeels the layers and explains the mechanics before dissecting them with surgical precision. Beyond the theatre, the costume and the well-worn plot she focuses on the fact that a man faces his death while a crowd looks on. The result is a startling confrontation with her own, and mankind's mortality.
