In the annals of great first lines, The Noble Hustle ranks near the top: “I have a good poker face,” Colson Whitehead writes, “because I am half dead inside.” Hustle is a gritty, grimly funny — and seriously self-deprecating — account of Whitehead’s adventures in poker, from home games to seedy $2 tables in Atlantic City and finally a trip to Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker — with a few detours for beef jerky, and a discourse on Anhedonia, his gloomy spiritual homeland. Spoiler alert: He didn’t win the millions or the diamond-encrusted champion’s bracelet. But he did produce a royal flush of a story (for you non-players, a royal flush is a pretty great thing). 
Here’s our exclusive First Read of The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky and Death, which publishes May 6. We’re also hosting a Twitter chat with Colson Whitehead  today starting at 12:30 pm ET. Hashtag #NPRHustle.

Read up and come out when Colson Whitehead is here at the store Wednesday, May 28 at 7pm.
