The Color of Money was adapted for the screen by Martin Scorsese and starred Paul Newman and Tom Cruise

It has been twenty years since the epic match-up between Eddie Felson and Minnesota Fats. Having gone from bona fide stardom to playing in exhibition matches for cable television, Eddie decides that he'd like to give the game one more shot. With a failed marriage behind him and a new generation of competitors in his way, Eddie must face his demons and find the will to succeed once more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Tevis writes about pool with power and poetry and tension. From the opening scene of this fine book, the reunion between Eddie and Fats 20 years after, the staccato beat of the prose and finely drawn characters grab the reader and don't let go. You don't have to like pool to like this book, to appreciate its sense of living on the edge * WASHINGTON POST *
This book sees the poetry of the pool game . . . Fast Eddie's ascent up the ladder from pool shark to full-time hustler is the story of the will to power, told in cool fifties style * GUARDIAN on THE HUSTLER *
If Hemingway had the passion for pool that he had for bullfighting, his hero might have been Eddie Felson * TIME on THE HUSTLER *
A fine, swift, wanton, offbeat novel * THE NEW YORK TIMES on THE HUSTLER *
