Titanic Thompson is a rollicking biography of one of the most charismatic characters in twentieth-century America. Like Howard Hughes or Bonnie and Clyde, Alvin 'Titanic' Thompson was one of the great figures of this freewheeling era; the difference between them: hardly anyone knows Titanic's name today. Travelling only with his golf clubs, a .45 revolver, and a suitcase full of cash, this is the legendary story of a man who was married five times to five different girls, the oldest just eighteen on her wedding day; of a man who murdered five men, though he'd say 'they'd all agree they had it coming to them'; and of a man who won and lost millions -- when a pro golfer would earn $10,000 a year, he was playing single holes for $20,000. Titanic Thompson, filled with fascinating facts and famous faces, is a brilliant snapshot of life on the road in twentieth-century America -- it's a terrific read for anyone who has ever laid a bet. 'If this was fiction, you wouldn't believe a word of it. You still might not believe it, but it's all true, and it's all here.' Mark Frost, author of The Greatest Game Ever Played
