The riveting true
story—and the subject of a high-profile film—of Olympic wrestling gold
medal-winning brothers Mark Schultz and Dave Schultz and their fatal
relationship with the eccentric John du Pont, heir to the du Pont dynasty
On January 26, 1996, Dave Schultz, Olympic gold-medal winner
and wrestling golden boy, was shot three times by du Pont family heir John E.
du Pont at the famed Foxcatcher Farms estate in Pennsylvania. Following the
murder there was a tense standoff when du Pont barricaded himself in his home
for two days before he was finally captured.
Foxcatcher is gold-medal-winner Mark Schultz’s memoir, revealing what made him and his brother
champions and what brought them to Foxcatcher Farms. It’s a vivid portrait of
the complex relationship he and his brother had with du Pont, a man whose
catastrophic break from reality led to tragedy. No one knows the inside story
of what went on behind the scenes at Foxcatcher Farms—and inside John du Pont’s
head—better than Mark Schultz.
