Billie Livingston

Billie Livingston's new book, One Good Hustle. tells the story of Sammie...a teen ager with two con artist parents. It's a novel that has the ring of authenticity....and perhaps that's because Billie's own father was a bit of a rounder himself who left the family when she was just a child.  

One Good Hustle was on the Giller list this year and has been getting great reviews.
