Fighting my fears – and winning in spite of losing
In a dank basement near Wall Street, author and journalist Thomas Page McBee spends months learning how to box. Soundtracked by hip-hop, he trains, learning the language, the dance, the fluidity. But when he steps into Madison Square Garden he faces more than his opponent, he’s confronts his own fears of masculinity, aggression, and inadequacy. The bell rings as thoughts tumble across Thomas’ mind in this poetic brush with our primal nature. Photo credit: Ala Lucia.
