."..[Capouya] delivers a solid, entertaining book about a long-forgotten character and a peculiar slice of American history."--Entertainment Weekly
"Former Newsweek editor John Capouya reveals the gory underworld of pre-WWE wrestling and shows how the Gorgeous One inspired James Brown, who loved George's robes, and Muhammad Ali, whose "I am the prettiest" echoed the wrestler's own vainglorious boasts."--Los Angeles Magazine
"In GORGEOUS GEORGE, Capouya combines extensive research and interviews with a colorful writing style and presents Gorgeous George as a cultural pioneer...Capouya's words are as fast-paced as the action in the ring and connect with the reader as solidly as a dropkick to George's kisser."--Tampa Tribune
A chronicle of the larger-than-life career of the flamboyant wrestling star traces his impoverished childhood in Houston and his relationship with his wife, to his influence in the careers of such figures as Muhammad Ali and Bob Dylan, to his alcohol-related early death. 35,000 first printing.
