James McManus Booking Agency Profile

Book James McManus for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
A successful novelist and poet who was teaching writing and comparative literature at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, McManus was given a $4,000 advance from Harpers magazine to cover the 2000 World Series of Poker and the scandalous Las Vegas murder trial of Ted Binion, the tournaments prodigal host. But, in an attempt to experience the workings of the game firsthand, he laid his advance on the table and entered the tournament. Over $240,000 and a fifth place later, he had lived the story of the glory, and agony, of the game. With scholarly insight and an edgy style, he chronicled his experience in The New York Times bestseller, Positively Fifth Street: Murderers, Cheetahs and Binions World Series of Poker, a tense and dramatic tale of high stakes poker combined with a captivating look into human nature..
