Sweet : an eight-ball odyssey.
Heather Byer’s gutsy Sweet: An Eight-Ball Odyssey opens a window onto the dark world of New York’s pool halls. One part memoir, one part suspenseful sports writing, Sweet follows Byer’s quest to master a difficult and misunderstood game. As she negotiates her way among pool sharks and through league matches and barroom romances, she offers a sharp, savvy perspective on desire, ambition and the galling disadvantage of being a woman determined to play a man’s game. And win. Byer became a pool convert in 1999, when she was in her early 30s.
Sweet: An Eight-ball Odyssey.
When Heather Byer moved to New York from the Midwest in the early 1990s, she was like thousands of newcomers before her: wholesome, overeducated, ready to jump head-first into the ruthless, exciting world of literature or film. She eventually built a successful career as a movie executive, only to realize that something was missing from her life. She was stuck - stuck in a lifestyle of fancy lunches and high-powered temper tantrums, of working too hard for too little personal fulfillment. Sweet: An Eight-ball Odyssey. Riverhead Books, 2007.
