"If Hemingway had the passion for pool that he had for bullfighting, his hero might have been Eddie Felson" (Time). The novel that inspired the classic film starring Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason, The Hustler tells the story of Fast Eddie Felson, a young pool player who hustles suckers in small towns, looking for stake money so he can reach his goal: a marathon match in Chicago against Minnesota Fats. An exploration of guts, stamina, and character, and of the difference between winners and losers, this tense, gritty tale is "a wonderful hymn to the last true era when men of substance played pool with a vengeance" (Time Out).
