RUNNING THE TABLE The Legend of Kid Delicious, the Last Great American Pool Hustler

by | Read by Butch Engle

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Like a Damon Runyon work, this book takes listeners into the world of the pool hustler, where nicknames like "Kid Delicious," "Bristol Bob," and "Puerto-Rican Pete" abound and where fame and celebrity are the kiss of death in terms of potential earnings. The book focuses primarily on Kid Delicious, a young pool hustler who rises to the height of his craft in the 1990s and early 2000s, but who can't make a living hustling once people start to recognize him. Butch Engle does a solid narration, delivering a kind of East Coast cigarette-voiced reading that gives the book flavor but doesn't overpower the material itself. He gives selected figures, especially Kid Delicious, distinctive voices when he reads direct quotes. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
