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.
Walter Tevis (Author). The movie in no way fallows the book, two different stories. Love any and all things pool.
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.
Walter Tevis is science fiction's great neglected master, one of the definitive bridges between sf and literature. The Color of Money is the source of the 1986 film starring Paul Newman in the role he had originated in The Hustler. The Steps of the Sun. For those who know his work only through the movies, the lucid prose and literary vision of Mockingbird and The Man Who Fell to Earth will come as a revelation. -AL SARRANTONIO, Author of The Five Worlds saga. Walter Tevis. China's world dominance is growing, and America is slipping into impotence.

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. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago. The color of money is, as a novel, far superior to the filmed version starring Cruise and Newman. Tevis shows us a dejected man who let years of his life just pass by idly while he ran a small pool hall, as opposed to Scorcese's Fast Eddie who had become a successful liquor salesman (ironically, Tevis's Felson failed as a salesman). Not only that, the Vince character (and his t-shirt) does not really exist in Tevis's book - Felson does not take on a prodigy at all. Even Fats is back in the book.
