PLG Nonfiction Book Group presents The Noble Hustle
Led by PLG store manager Geo, our nonfiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For July, the group reads and discusses Pulitzer Prize winning author Colson Whitehead’s nonfiction book, The Nobel Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death. In 2011, Grantland magazine gave Colson Whitehead $10,000 to play at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. It was the assignment of a lifetime, except for one hitch-- he'd never played in a casino tournament before. With just six weeks to train, our humble narrator took the Greyhound to Atlantic City to learn the ways of high-stakes Texas Hold'em. Entertaining, ironic, and strangely profound, this epic search for meaning at the World Series of Poker is a sure bet.
