Boomer got the money from his backer, handed it to Eddie. This time Eddie did not take out his wallet. They were like old friends, old lovers
Boomer got the money from his backer, handed it to Eddie. He folded the bills and pushed them down into his pants pocket while Boomer stood watching. They were like old friends, old lovers. The week apart and the trip and the money had changed everything for him and they could both feel it. He knew what to do and so did she. They lay on her sofa bed afterward and talked.
The Color of Money book. It’s not among Walter Tevis’ best books and I wouldn’t even say it’s worth reading to find out what happened next to these characters (the answer: not much!) if you liked The Hustler - definitely a e-author-only novel. Apr 01, 2015 Lee rated it it was amazing. I was aware that this book followed The Hustler, but since I was holding it in my hand at the Attic, used book store, I thought I would read it first anyway.

Tevis writes about pool with power and poetry and tension
Fast Eddie Felson was the best in the country. Tevis writes about pool with power and poetry and tension. From the opening scene of this fine book, the reunion between Eddie and Fats twenty 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.

The Color of Money is a 1984 novel by American novelist Walter Tevis. It is the sequel to his 1959 novel, The Hustler. The novel is set twenty years after The Hustler. Fast Eddie now runs a pool hall of his own. Eddie persuades Fats to go on a national tour.
Tevis's book paints a very different picture of Fast Eddie in the 80's. The color of money is, as a novel, far superior to the filmed version starring Cruise and Newman. The film is underrated, and has many fine points but when compared to the book it is very, very disappointing. The novel starts slowly, retracing the last 25 years of hustler Eddie Felson and him building a new future for himself.
Walter Stone Tevis (February 28, 1928 – August 9, 1984) was an American novelist and short story writer. Three of his six novels were adapted into major films: The Hustler, The Color of Money and The Man Who Fell to Earth. Tevis was born in San Francisco, California and grew up in the Sunset District, near the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Park
