About this title:

Synopsis: Depicts a subculture rich with legend - from the no-limits Hold'em game to the late 20th-century World Championships in Las Vegas. Its terminology underpins modern life: Alvarez tells us "passing the buck" came from the baize table, as did "bluff", "above board", and "something up your sleeve".

About the Author: A. Alvarez is the author of numerous books and anthologies of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and criticism. He is also a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and the New York Review of Books and perhaps the only published poet ever to participate in the World Series of Poker. His book about the series, The Biggest Game in Town, has become a cult classic. He lives in London.
