The story of Vikki LaMotta's life reads like a highlight reel from a television mini-series. Born into poverty. Raped at age fourteen. Pregnant and married at sixteen. Subjected to brutal beatings by her husband world middleweight champion Jake LaMotta. Vikki left Jake, worked as a chorus girl to support three young children, was pursued by Frank Sinatra and became romantically involved with mob boss Sam Giancana. At one on time or another, she crossed paths with the likes of Babe Ruth, Jimmy Durante, Johnny Carson, and Robert Deniro. At age 51, she posed nude for Playboy. The issue sold more copies to women than any issue of Playboy ever. Vikki' own story is now told and written with acclaimed author Thomas Hauser and reveals much new information about her amazing life. Knockout! is a straight-from-the-heart account of a life filled with sex and violence that ultimately became a survivor's journey to redemption long before the #Me Too Movement. "Not an edited life but honest facts and events." Vikki wrote to Hauser on completion of the manuscript. "After a final reading, a deep sigh with an amazing amount of relief and exhilaration. Not relief of a project completed but relief of a past saved, not lived in vain." "Vikki LaMotta was a good person." writes Hauser. "That's as simply and honestly as I can put it. She battled her demons and won. This is her story." This new edition includes an afterword by Hauser and coincides with the 40th anniversary of the award winning movie, Raging Bull directed by Martin Scorsese. Robert DeNiro won his first Oscar as Best Actor for his role of Jake LaMotta, and Cathy Moriarty who at only 18 years old was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar in her portrayal of Vikki LaMotta.
