The Poker Player: A Novel by Andrew Laurie
Over the next three weeks, we trained ferociously hard for the Main Event. Getting up late, spending hours by the pool, followed by evenings drinking and clubbing—this was not your normal preparation. But as Jay never tired of saying, poker isn’t like other games.
Andrew’s first book, Redemption, was published in 2014. A thriller set in East London, Redemption explores themes of guilt, loss and penance. In 2015 Andrew published his second novel, The Poker Player. Lighter at times than Redemption, the same themes of addiction and lives spiraling out of control are found throughout the book.
