Format: Paperback
With so many books written about Las Vegas, I was surprised The Guardian (UK) named FADE SAG CRUMBLE one of the ten best books set in Las Vegas, sharing the honor with such icons as Hunter S. Thompson's FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS Pulitzer prize-winner Larry McMurtry's THE DESERT ROSE.

Surprised, yes, but happily.

FADE SAG CRUMBLE is a gritty, honest collection of stories about Las Vegas as varied as the ten Las Vegas writers and journalists who contributed to it. With both cynicism and compassion, the storytellers share their impressions of and experiences with the real Las Vegas - and though each story is unique and independent of each other, a common thread ties them all together, making for a fast-paced fascinating journey through the alter ego of the desert "tourist' destination."

With descriptions like, "free range alcoholics," and "It's tough to tell who's talking to their headsets and who's talking to themselves," I devoured every word like a protein-starved cannibal. The images created are so vivid, the language so raw, the stories so depressing they're almost invigorating.

I feel like I took a walk on the wild side and lived to talk about it.

The Jarret Keene story is amazing! The rest are pretty meh. There are two in a row about plastic surgery, which is a bit much. Some of the stories overexaggerate the state of things in Las Vegas. Many of the stories make some good points and will get you thinking about Las Vegas in a different light. But, except for the Keene story, I had to slog through the stories to get to the author's point. It's an ok quick read.
