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.
