Praise For A Flame of Pure Fire: Jack Dempsey and the Roaring '20s…
"The fact that Jack Dempsey was one of America's preeminent celebrities in the 1920s was the result of both the man himself and the special decade in which he flourished. That is why Roger Kahn devotes almost equal attention to the two phenomena. Together, they give us a brilliantly written picture of a champion and his era."—Ring Lardner, Jr.
