Description:

The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky and Death
Colson Whitehead

In conversation with Laurie Winer, founding editor, Los Angeles Review of Books

Whitehead, the bestselling author of Zone One and an amateur player, lucked into a seat at the biggest card game in town—the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. In this raucous social satire—equally exhilarating for those who’ve played cards their whole life or who have never picked up a hand—he chronicles the gritty subculture of high-stakes Texas Hold-em.
