Biblioholic's Bookshelf: The Hustler - Fifties Mainstream Fiction

This is a 1984 edition of The Hustler,  released to coincide with the release of the sequel, The Color of Money. A message from Walter Tevis is included, noting that his Minnesota Fats was a completely fictional character, though he only alludes to Rudolf Wanderone who took on the name Minnesota Fats after the book and movie.
