In her gloriously written memoir of growing up in a family of hardcore gamblers, Frankel thought the gambling gene had passed her by, until she found herself addicted to online poker and knee-deep in debt.
From the Publisher:
Martha Frankel grew up in a warm, loving family of diehard gamblers, where her fatherÂ's poker games and her motherÂ's mah-jongg blended happily with big pots of delicious food and endless gossip. As kids, she and her cousins bet on everythingÂ?from which of their Weight Watching mothers would lose the most to who could hold their breath longest underwater or eat the most matzo. But once Frankel left for college and later became a successful entertainment journalist, gambling didnÂ't factor much into her life. She thought her family legacy had passed her by.|| In this Â?fast-paced and amazingly funnyÂ? (The Times- Picayune) memoir, Frankel traces her love affair with poker, an obsession that didnÂ't hit until her mid-forties. And she was good at poker. Frankel won routinely, whether she was playing in her Wednesday-night poker game or in one of the seedy, out-of-the-way rooms she always managed to find when on assignment. But all this changed when she discovered online poker. It was the beginning of what one of her uncles called Â?hats and eyeglasses,Â? a term used to describe those times when youÂ're losing so bad your ship is sinking until all thatÂ's left on the waterÂ's surface are your hat and eyeglasses. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Hats & Eyeglasses is a tale of passion, addictionÂ? and those times in life when we almost lose our shirt.
