The Broadway Books Library of Larceny

Luc Sante, General Editor

McGoorty is master billiards writer Robert Byrne’s racy account of the life of Danny McGoorty, a billiards champion of that bygone era when cue artists were often scam artists and pool rooms were held to be dens of iniquity. Hustler and hobo, womanizer and fashion plate, McGoorty was at once eyewitness to Capone’s Chicago and the feats of greats like Willie Hoppe and Willie Mosconi. In an all-American voice at once sarcastic, profane, humorous, and chock full of colorful lingo, he relates his colorful and seedy life and times with a unique style and brio.

Synopsis:

Traces the infamous career of billiards champion and pool room hustler Danny McGoorty, citing his escapades as a scam artist, womanizer, and fashionable dresser as well as his relationships with such figures as Al Capone, Willie Hoppe, and Willie Mosconi. Reprint.
