James McManus

IN THE NEW AFTERWARD - "A GRAY ARIA" - JAMES McMANUS FOLLOWS THE DRAMATIC REVERSAL OF THE CONVICTIONS IN THE BINION MURDER CASE, WHICH WILL BE RETRIED IN 2004.

"Irresistible... His prose is flashy, funny, and unexpectedly erudite... the writer's equivalent of a royal flush." - TIME

IN THE SPRING OF 2000, HARPER'S SENT JAMES McMANUS TO Las Vegas to cover the World Series of Poker, in particular the progress of women in the $23 million event, and the death of Ted Binion, the event's prodigal host, purportedly done in by a stripper and her boyfriend. But when McManus arrives, the lure of the tables compels him to risk his entire advance in a long-shot attempt to play in the competition. This is his deliciously suspenseful account of the tournament - the players, the hand-to-hand combat, his own unlikely progress in it - and the delightfully seedy carnival atmosphere that surrounds it.

"Exhilarating...As tension-packed as any thriller...A great story. James McManus bet big and won." - THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW (cover review)

"Astounding...wildly entertaining." - MEN'S JOURNAL

"In writing about poker Jim McManus has managed to write about everything, and it's glorious." - DAVID SEDARIS, author of Me Talk Pretty One Day

JAMES McMANUS is the author of four novels, most recently Going to the Sun, winner of the Carl Sandburg Award for sports journalism. His writing appears in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Esquire, Chicago, and Harper's, and has been widely anthologized. He teaches at the School of Art Institute of Chicago, including a course on the literature and science of poker.
