Read and discuss "Billy Phelan's Greatest Game," by William Kennedy. Copies of the book are available for borrowing.
"In 1930s Albany, New York, Billy Phelan is a slightly-tarnished poker player, pool hustler and small-time bookie. A resourceful man full of Irish pluck, Billy works the fringes of the city's sporting life with his own particular style and private code of honor, until he finds himself in the dangerous position of the potential go-between in the kidnapping of a political boss's son."
