Book Beginnings: Titanic Thompson

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Titanic Thompson: The Man Who Bet on Everything by Kevin Cook

"He blew into town like a rogue wind that lifted girls' skirts and turned gamblers' pockets inside-out."

Titanic did do both of these things, not literally, but figuratively. A gambler who never bet unless he knew he could win (except on horses), he is a fascinating figure.
