A memoir of twin passions, boxing and politics, set against the backdrop of South Africa under apartheid, Dancing Shoes is Dead is a vivid and poignant portrait of two disparate yet strangely connected worlds, and of the characters, brave, brutal and often bizarre, who inhabit them both.
Gavin Evans was born in London in 1960. He grew up mainly in South Africa, where he tried his hand at boxing, worked as a campaigning journalist and threw himself into the underground politics of the African National Congress. Since returning to London in 1993 he has written on politics and sport for the New York Times, Esquire, Playboy, The New Statesman, the Daily Mail and the Guardian. His biography of Naseem Hamed, Prince of the Ring, was published in 1996.
