Description

"[This] Honest, funny betting memoir rises to the top... Frankel's lively storytelling allows her to turn her own crapola into a winner."

"Fun and full of life. I've known Martha Frankel for twenty years and "Hats & Eyeglasses" was still surprising. A wonderful book." -Jane Smiley, author of "Ten Days in the Hills" and "A Year at the Races" "A bluntly honest memoir of gambling addiction-harrowing, funny, and compulsively readable, straight through to the end." -John Berendt, author of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and "The City of Falling Angels" ""Hats & Eyeglasses" is a hamische tour de force. With a warm voice and a light touch, Martha Frankel's account of growing up with gambling pays off, big-time. My bet is on her as she both enshrines and kicks her compulsion. Entertaining and enlightening, this is a must for memoir addicts, and a fine debut for the author." -Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of "Sleeping Arrangements" and "Beautiful Bodies"
