FIGHT MEMOIR: MY CALL TO THE RING!

FIGHT MEMOIR: MY CALL TO THE RING!

My Call To The Ring: A Memoir Of A Girl Who Yearns To Box is the story of Deirdre Gogarty, an Irish lass whose love for the fight game in the ‘80s sets her on a quest to become a world champion – not exactly an easy task even without the fact Ireland banned women from the sport at the time.

Gogarty’s story (written with Darrelyn Saloom) is well told and inspiring.  However, there are two things setting this memoir apart from other similar boxing travails.  The first is the atmosphere captured by the prose as it delineates the underbelly seediness of the training conditions faced by all but the highest level of boxers.  There is no glamour here, just hard graft – hitting and being hit in tattered rings jerry-rigged in sheds and garages, stifling hot air, and the uncertainty of where the next fight, the next dollar, and sometimes even the next meal are going to come from.

Secondly, and most important to the success of the narrative, is the way Gogarty’s ‘voice’ has been captured.  You believe Gogarty is sitting next to you, sharing her fears, shortcomings, uncertainties, defeats and triumphs.

As with her opponents in the ring, it is ultimately Gogarty’s relentless courage and determination that leaves its mark on her readers. My Call To The Ring is a standout addition to the shelves of boxing literature.

THE TROUBLE WITH BLONDES!

ALL PULP FEATURES FIGHT CARD!

ALL PULP FEATURES FIGHT CARD!

PULPMEISTER BOBBY NASH INTERVIEWS FIGHT CARD AUTHOR PAUL BISHOP (FIGHT CARD: FELONY FISTS) OVER AT THE ALL PULP BLOG ...

Pulp novels covered a wide range of genres. New Pulp Author Paul Bishop is working with a talented crop of writers to bring back the sweet science to pulp. Welcome to Fight Card.

All Pulp recently sat down with Bish to discuss his writing, the Fight Card Series, and all things pulp. Pulpsters, meet Paul Bishop.

AP: Tell us a little about yourself and your pulp interests.

PB: I’ve been voraciously reading pulp stories since my early twenties starting with reprints from the detective story magazines (such as Black Mask), and eventually moving on to the standard hero tales like the Shadow and Doc Savage.  When I started collecting pulps, I found myself drawn to the adventure, sports, and western pulps as they were more affordable and plentiful. 

I first got hooked on collecting copies of Argosy and Adventure – magazines containing stories from the likes of H. Beresford Jones, Talbot Mundy, and the swashbuckling tales of George Challis (Max Brand).  A long run of Street and Smith’s Sport Story was next as I collected tales by Jackson Scholz under his many pseudonyms.  All of this led to Fight Stories Magazine and my fixation and enjoyment of fight fiction, which would eventually inspire the Fight Card series of novelettes I currently write and edit.
