Las Vegas for Vegans
Las Vegas for Vegans

Listen
AIR DATE: January 23, 2012

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.

    It really spoils it for me that the author has never visited Vegas.

    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.
