Walter Tevis: "Win"  

Hi. Many of you know Walter Tevis as the author of The Man Who Fell To Earth. What many do not realize is he also wrote The Hustler, a book that became the movie starring Paul Newman.

In the book The Hustler, Fast Eddie has an epiphany in his final duel with Minnesota Fats. Eddie realizes "all he has to do is win." Before this, Eddie had merely been trying to survive and play a good game against the legendary Fat Man.

I feel that Eddie's epiphany may have inspired Bowie's song, "Win." I wonder if any of you have the Walter Tevis book, The Hustler on hand, can you quote Eddie's final realization, the one that causes him to "win?"
