An experiment dreamed up by two fathers, one white, one black. Poor black kids and rich white kids together on one basketball team. An opportunity for the black kids to earn a chance at a private school education. A way for the privileged white kids to learn about life's other side. The whole notion was a corny fantasy come to life. The ragtag bunch gelled and won a state title. The boys all became fast friends. The "experiment" was deemed a success. But was it? How did crossing lines of class, race, and wealth affect the lives of these ten boys? The Hustleweaves together their stories in a breathtaking narrative. Their passages through the gauntlet of American reality sharply capture just how much race, money, and wealth affect our lives. Damian is a minister and a teacher. JT struggles to support two daughters. Tyrell was murdered. Dino, the son of immigrants, now runs a hedge fund. Myran, the team clown, faces ten years in prison for his role in a forty-dollar drug deal. Sean, another goofball, is now a tough-on-crime prosecutor. Doug, a benchwarmer, is a writer trying to make sense of his teammate's lives. The Hustleis an instant classic of narrative nonfiction. Ten lives are masterfully painted against a background of broad social and economic change, with the city of Seattle becoming a character in its own right. A tale both personal and public, The Hustleis required reading for fans of The Corner, the Up Series films, or The Last Shot.
