Fascinating Human Stories from the Soul of Las Vegas
on March 1, 2010
Best of luck, good luck too.
P Moss has bestowed a complex, fascinating, and not always apparent view of Sin City that is way overdue. P Moss is a gambler, social analyst, and tavern owner of the Double Down Saloon (DDS boasts of "bringing a much needed sophistication to Las Vegas. Interplanetary abstract. Urban decay. The Anti-Vegas... made for the lunatic fringe") and delivers a gem of a ride in his first published book. Moss writes with a breezy and entertaining style in recounting very human stories about the curious, remarkable, and shadowy lives of the always interesting Vegas locals and visitors. All the captivating and absorbing details of the lives of hard-core gamblers, criminals, show girls, and other quirky characters are on display in this very amusing and fun read.
As a Las Vegas resident and minister I thoroughly enjoyed this work: at times I roared with laughter and other times felt pity for the people who got trapped by powerful things and allurements.
This is a great book for the Las Vegas tourist and wonderful right-on-target volume for the Vegas local. Makes a delightful read on a plane, while on the beach, or at the buffet table.
