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.

Mark’s memoir will reveal the true inside story of these championship-winning brothers and the wealthiest convicted murderer of all time.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mark Schultz’ Foxcatcher book is raw, authentic, and powerful.”

    Digital Journal

  • “In this disturbing, heartfelt memoir, the life of champion wrestler Schultz plays out against the backdrop of his brother’s murder in 1996 at the hands of John du Pont, heir to the du Pont family…The relationship between Schultz and his more easy-going, older brother is vividly portrayed as one of the sibling rivalry and real love.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Memoir of time spent with a deeply unpleasant and, in the end, murderous mogul.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Stephen Mendel narrates this book as a crime story rather than a memoir…Mandel’s deep, resounding voice creates an atmosphere in which the facts speak loudly and the story becomes paramount.”
