It was an offer that a budding young novelist just couldn't refuse. As part of a Grantland magazine assignment, Colson Whitehead (Zone One; Sag Harbor) agreed to participate in the week-long 2011 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, he had little experience in the game and, as he recounts in this funny recap, much of his hasty preparation for the tournament was more entertaining than ultimately instructive. Nevertheless, he approaches the game with a combination of fascination and fatalism that even seasoned players will be able to appreciate. The Noble Hustle is a well-crafted jaunt into a shared obsession.
