"Here is the poker novel I've been waiting years for someone to write. It doesn't just feel true. It is."--Brian Koppelman, co-writer of Rounders and Billions
"What a ride! I have to confess sometimes the anxiety was so great I had to put the book down and build up my courage before I could pick it up again. But I was so glad I did and was bereft when the book ended-sad to be off this roller coaster ride through the world of live-or-die high-stakes poker and marriage."--Beverly Donofrio, author of Riding in Cars with Boys and Astonished.
"It's like a sequel to Walker Percy's The Moviegoer-with poker as a stand-in for movies, and the protagonist now having married and become a father. I started reading, couldn't stop."- Tom Beller, author of J.D. Salinger: The Escape Artist
