Las Vegas for Vegans is not a new diet plan. It's the best short story of the year by an Australian crime writer. We talk with A.C. Patric about his story that gives a noirish twist to our fair city - it's a dark tale of hookers and death in the desert.
That the author hasn't been to Las Vegas doesn't worry me since I see it as a celebration of the imagination and as the author says research. I don't agree with the author's comment however that the desert is nothing. Anyway the story appeals. Jan Dean –Sep 8, 2012 17:49:01 PM
