Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Cuando Jim Nashe es abandonado por su mujer, se lanza a la vida errante. Antes ha recibido una inesperada herencia de un padre que nunca conocio y que le permitira vagabundear por America en un Saab rojo, el mejor coche que nunca tuvo. Nashe va de motel en motel, goza de la velocidad, vive en una soledad casi completa y experimenta la gozosa y desgarradora seduccion del desarraigo absoluto. Tras un ano de esta vida, y cuando apenas le quedan diez mil dolares de la herencia, conoce a Jack Pozzi, un jovencisimo jugador profesional de poquer. Los dos hombres entablan una peculiar relacion y Jim Nashe se constituye en el socio de Pozzi. Una sola sesion de poquer podria hacerles ricos. / Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, The Music of Chance follows Jim Nashe who, after squandering an unexpected inheritance, picks up a young gambler named Jack Pozzi hoping to con two millionaires. But when their plans backfire, Jim and Jack are indentured by their elusive marks and are forced to build a meaningless wall with bricks gathered from ruins of an Irish castle. Time passes, their debts mount, and anger builds as the two struggle to dig themselves out of their Kafkaesque serfdom.
