In conversation with Steve Ross

Mark Kram Jr. won the 2013 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing for Like Any Normal Day, the tragic story of two brothers bonded but separated by a devastating sports injury. He formerly wrote for the Philadelphia Daily News and Philadelphia Magazine and was honored by the Society of Professional Journalists with the 2011 Sigma Delta Chi Award for feature writing. Smokin’ Joe explores the pugilistic and personal life of one of the sweet science’s most misunderstood figures.
