The Biggest Game in Town

I read A. Alvarez's The Biggest Game in Town this past weekend. I thought it was very good. It dealt pretty extensively with the 1981 World Series of Poker. Alvarez didn't emphasize how the tournament went that year. Personalities and their psyches were examined. I thought it was a decent book.

I'm trying to get into What is the What right now. I'll take my time with that book though since I can easily renew the checkout on that book.1 I've also got to read Revolutionary Road for book club. After that, I'll work on Children's Hospital.

1As one might expect, it's one of the benefits from checking out a book held by a library where you work.
