Balling the Jack

(1997)
A novel by

 
Sharp, funny, romantic tale of love and gambling in slacker-generation New York.

Tom Reasons is a young man who takes his pay cheque every week and bets it all on a Friday night ball game. Then it's either champagne or pot-noodles for a week. He's lost his girl because he couldn't commit to her and now he regrets it. He hangs out at an Irish bar and plays on the darts team with his pals. One drunken night, he challenges the captain of the meanest, dirtiest team in the league to a money-match. And then doubles the bet. Now the race is on for Tom to come up with the $40,000 stake and get his team to win without telling them how much pressure they are really under! Great suspense, lots of laughs, true romance.
