Ordered Andy's book The King of Casinos: Willie Martello and The El Rey Club, and read it from cover to cover.
Sheer brilliance from cover to cover.
It's a story about a small casino in a small Nevada town, and the owner who had some big ideas. It's a nice, breezy read chock full of some great anecdotes and insights into a time long past. (I wouldn't expect Andy to suddenly write like, say, Dostoevsky...he's the kind of guy who believes Chekhov's gun refers to the fact that, if you show a gun in Act 1, you use it to shoot Ensign Chekhov). It's the kind of book that reads like fiction....but it's all based on fact.
I can't say enough about this - it's a great read. Go buy it. click on the photo below. You'll thank me later.
