Danny McGoorty was a pool hustler whose heyday was in the 1920s and 30s. He told his stories in 1970 to Robert Byrne, who wroteMcGoorty: A Pool Room Hustler. "McGoorty" is master at billiards and racy account of the life of Danny McGoorty, hustler and hobo, womanizer and fashion plate, and a billiards champion of that bygone era when cue artists were often scam artists and pool rooms were held to be dens of iniquity. McGoorty's language was rooted in the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression and the Chicago of the Capone Years. Listen to McGoorty tell his tales and you'll taste flavors of American social history that you'll never find in a textbook.
