Description
 
Mordecai Richler (au). A brilliant, witty & compact look at the game of snooker (pool) -- past & present -- by one of the world’s great novelists. Mordecai Richler honed his cueing action in the pool halls of Montreal. He was addicted to the game & its grown-up cousin -- snooker -- ever after. Richler traces the history of snooker from its 19th-century origins to the tobacco-sponsored world of today’s game. He visits the craftsmen who make the cues, the agents who control the sport, the groupies who follow the circuit & the millionaire players themselves. The ‘bad boys’ from Alex Higgins to Ronnie O’Sullivan, his fellow countrymen Cliff Thorburn & Kirk Stevens &, the central figure of the book, Stephen Hendry, the game’s most talented exponent ever. This is sports writing at its best!
