KIRKUS REVIEW

A complete and relentlessly honest self-portrait of a neurotic, nomadic, unstable celebrity. Born in Russia, the son of an American and a vivid Cossack girl, he soon revealed his manysided personality -- becoming a revolutionary, then a sophisticated decadent, finally going to America where he took up cards professionally. Marriage to Jo, and then the biggest gamble of his career, the promotion and establishment of himself and the Culbertson system. Overwritten, overlong, but a meteoric career story, with a good chance for sales.
