Jonathan David Rendall
Birth: Jun., 1964
City of Oxford
Oxfordshire, England
Death: Feb. 7, 2013, England

Author, Journalist. Born in Oxford, he was a Somerset Maugham Award-winning British writer. Educated at St. John's School in Leatherhead, and the prestigious Magdalen College in Oxford, he was a Managerial Advisor to the World Featherweight boxing champion, Colin "Sweet C" McMillan, before turning to writing. His books which include, "The Bloody Mary Is the Last Thing I Own: A Journey to the End of Boxing", "Garden Hopping", "Memoir of an Adoption", "The Longest Walk", "Scream: The Real Mike Tyson", and "Twelve Grand", often focused on the detailed lives of snooker players, bookmakers, dedicated drinkers, gamblers, and boxers and their trainers. Three of his works were multi-award winning books. The latter was turned into a 3-part television mini-series which was shown on Britain's Channel 4 as "The Gambler". He also wrote numerous articles for such publications as Ring, Esquire, Playboy, The Times and The Observer newspapers. Often compared to the writers Hunter S. Thompson and Jeffrey Bernard, he was given the title, "The Greatest Gonzo Writer You've Never Heard Of". He was found dead at his home in Ipswich, apparently from natural causes. (bio by: K)
