O. Kwon’As compelling and hilarious and indecently sad as life can be.’ Financial Times____________You are a small thing, and you must learn to fight.

Swiv has taken her grandmother’s advice too literally. Now she’s at home, suspended from school. Mom is pregnant and preoccupied – and so Swiv is in the older woman’s charge, receiving a very different form of education from a teacher with a style all her own.

Grandma likes her stories fast, troublesome and funny. She’s known the very worst that life can throw at you – and has met it every time with a wild, unnamable spirit, fighting for joy and independence every step of the way. But will maths lessons based on Amish jigsaws and classes on How to Dig a Winter Grave inspire the same fire in Swiv, and ensure it never goes out?Time is running short.

Grandma’s health is failing, the baby is on the way, as a family of three extraordinary women prepare to face life’s great changes together. Poignant, hilarious and deeply moving, Fight Night is a girl’s love letter to the women raising her and a tribute to one family’s fighting spirit.
