Write The First Customer Review

Author Sharon Mazer looks at the world of professional wrestling both from the fan's-eye-view and from the wrestlers' gym. It begins with how performances are constructed and sold to spectators. Also the book explores professional wrestling's carnivalesque presentation of masculinities and the question of the "real" and the "fake" as the fans themselves confront it. 30 photos.
