Pulp Friday: The Hustler

The Hustler

“A taunt, suspenseful novel of a strange smoke-filled world where drifters, sharks and lushes live by one rule that is a command: WIN!”

Today’s Pulp Friday needs no introduction, The Hustler, by Walter Tevis.

This cover is from the paperback version published by Dell Books in 1959.

I’m sure you’ll agree with me it’s a beautiful cover. The book is great and it was also a terrific movie starring Paul Newman. Indeed, just posting this image makes me want to see the movie again.

The back cover design below is also great.

Enjoy.
