Quote of the Day

Author Paul Auster, on poker:

    "This was the first time he had seriously confronted what he was doing, and the force of that awareness came very abruptly - with a surging of his pulse and a frantic pounding in his head. He was about to gamble his life on that table, and the insanity of that risk filled him with a kind of awe."
I don't know which book that's from - perhaps one of the more literary-inclined readers can point me in the right direction?
