Independent, first time publishing firm Affirmed Press is pleased to announce that “LAFFIT: Anatomy of a Winner, The Biography of Laffit Pincay, Jr.” by Madelyn Cain was named Winner: The National Best Books Award for Biography, USA Book News as well as the Winner of the Premier Book Awards for best Biography.
“LAFFIT, Anatomy of a Winner” traces the life history of Hall of Fame jockey, Laffit Pincay Jr. the winningest jockey of all time.
About the book Larry King says, “Laffit Pincay is arguably the greatest jockey who ever lived. In this remarkable book, Cain takes you inside the circus-type world that is horse racing. The writing is eloquent. You will not put it down.”
Ray Kerrison of the New York Post says, “The book is a shocker. All through the glory years, when he was riding high as the sun and being showered with public adulation and wealth, Pincay was spinning from one domestic nightmare to another. It’s a harrowing tale, much of it self inflicted.”
Author Madelyn Cain teaches at the University of Southern California. Her previous books are “The Childless Revolution” and “First Time Mothers, Last Chance Babies”.
She has appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, NPR, CNN, NBC Evening News and more.
Affirmed Press is currently hoping to interest a larger publishing house with the hopes that the book, which has often been on the Amazon best selling biography list, will find wider distribution. Affirmed Press is located in Pasadena, California and can be reached via AffirmedPress.com or at 626.470.5906.
