Recensioner i media

Tevis writes about pool with power and poetry and tension. From the opening scene of this fine book, the reunion between Eddie and Fats 20 years after, the staccato beat of the prose and finely drawn characters grab the reader and don't let go. You don't have to like pool to like this book, to appreciate its sense of living on the edge * WASHINGTON POST * This book sees the poetry of the pool game . . . Fast Eddie's ascent up the ladder from pool shark to full-time hustler is the story of the will to power, told in cool fifties style * GUARDIAN on THE HUSTLER * If Hemingway had the passion for pool that he had for bullfighting, his hero might have been Eddie Felson * TIME on THE HUSTLER * A fine, swift, wanton, offbeat novel * THE NEW YORK TIMES on THE HUSTLER *

Övrig information

Walter Tevis was an American novelist and short story writer. Whilst a student at the University of Kentucky, Tevis worked in a pool hall and published a story about the game for an English class. He would later revisit his love for pool in the novels THE HUSTLER (1959) and THE COLOR OF MONEY (1984), both of which would be adapted into multiple award-winning films starring Paul Newman. Among his other works, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (1963) and MOCKINGBIRD (1980) are considered masterpieces of science fiction. Tevis died in 1984.
