Irvin Muchnick will be in St. Louis next month for two book signings. On Thursday, June 21, at 7 p.m., he will appear at the Pro Wrestling Shirt Shop along with special guest Larry Matysik (another St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee, author of Wrestling at the Chase, and co-author of the forthcoming Brody: The Triumph and Tragedy of Wrestlingâ€™s Rebel).

A complete schedule of Muchnickâ€™s local media appearances will be published prior to his St. Louis tour.
WRESTLING BABYLON (ECW Press) is the countryâ€™s hottest-selling new wrestling book. Frank Deford says, â€œIrv Muchnick knows wrestling like Anna Wintour knows fashion.â€ The New York Post calls WRESTLING BABYLON â€œa book that [World Wrestling Entertainment head] Vince McMahon no doubt wishes was never published.â€
