BEER, BLOOD & CORNMEAL. The Punk Rock Wrestling Memoir from Bob Calhoun Incredibly Strange Wrestlingmore than lived up to its name. This sleazy spectacle combined highflying masked Mexican mayhem with the raucous rock and roll of The Dickies, The Donnas and NOFX.

I can't count the number of pro-wrestling related books I've read in recent years - well into the dozens - but I can name the most enjoyable: "Beer, Blood & Cornmeal!" Bob Calhoun (as Count Dante) becomes a psychotronic George Plimpton, finding himself smack dab in the middle of one of the wildest pro wrestling movements in history/5(15).

My high school English teacher insisted that form mirrored content, and that definitely holds true for Beer, Blood & Cornmeal. Much like the Incredibly Strange Wrestling covered in this book, there's lots of metaphors, exaggerated sentences, and over-the-top descriptions/5.

However, my praise for Beer Blood & Cornmeal goes beyond the subject matter. It also takes into account the actual writing: it's funny. The book is well written, interesting, and incorporates (counter)cultural aspects of San Francisco and the US in general to flesh out the story/5(14).
