French Debut


Across the pond, Lost Vegas made its French debut on Friday to many positive reviews from non-poker press according to my editor Jerome from Inculte.

Lost Vegas will be getting comprehensive coverage in the national French media, and maybe this DSK scandal will boost sales? Here's what to look out for....
- radio coverage on Europe 1, France Culture

- TV coverage on Canal plus on two shows at least : La Matinale and Edition
Speciale

- national press coverage : Les Inrockuptibles (best cultural weekly magazine),
Rock&Folk, Libération (daily press), Magic, Vice Magazine (pretty good hipster
stuff), Le Monde 2, Alibi magazine, etc.
So if you're in France the next few weeks, keep an eye out for any press about Lost Vegas!

Jerome and Benjo (who translated it) worked hard on this project for almost 2 years, so I'm glad their diligent work is being recognized and the project is off to an auspicious start!

Here's the link to Lost Vegas' page on Inculte.

Report a Typo

If you found any typos or errors in Lost Vegas, by all means, tell me! Shoot me an email and please include the page number of the error.

One of the coolest aspects of POD (print on demand) is that I have control over the final manuscript, which means that I can alter it so future copies of Lost Vegas will not include any of those errors. I had an awesome bunch of editors and proofreaders, but when you're dealing with a manuscript that's almost 100,000 words, it's inevitable that even a few typos slip through the cracks.

Thanks for your help.

Lost Vegas to Appear on a College Syllabus



Thanks to a dear friend of mine who is a college English professor, Lost Vegas will be discussed in one of his classes!

This semester Shamus is teaching a special course titled Poker in American Film and Culture. Man, if I had Shamus as my prof, I would have not ditched class to follow the Grateful Dead and I would have actually gone to class (albeit, I would have been stoned to the bejesus, but at least he's teaching a subject that I'd be thrilled about). Anyway, you can imagine how thrilled (and floored) that I was upon learning that Shamus selected a chapter out of Lost Vegas as part of the required reading for the course. I can't believe that I'm in the mix with the Mount Rushmore of poker scribes, along with several of the most historical pieces of gambling/poker cinema in the history of film making. Now, if I can just figure out how to audit that class...

Atlanta Gambling Examiner's Review

James Pickard penned a review of Lost Vegas for the Atlanta's Gambling Examiner.

Here's a bit:
The book is filled with the darker side of Las Vegas, which he calls "Lost Vegas": a world of prostitutes, substance abuse, and problem gambling. Yet, somehow, McGuire retains the humor necessary to survive the existential wasteland in the desert of Nevada, and he even manages to find some redemptive qualities amid the orgy of desperation.
Read the full review here.

The Goat's Review

One of my favorite scribes, Julius Goat, penned a stellar review of Lost Vegas. He wrote it as guest post for Full Tilt's Poker From the Rail blog. Check it out, because it's one of my favorites.

Here's a sample...
I'm here to tell you, brothers and sisters of the congregation: Lost Vegas is about as interested in poker as Fear and Loathing was in the Mint 400. Sure, WSOP happening in the background, but Lost Vegas is not about poker. It's almost not about poker as a mission statement. Instead, it's about being in that time, and that place. More specifically, it's about being Paul McGuire in Las Vegas; there during the World Series of Poker, sure, and covering it, sure, but that's just the wallpaper. These are impressions of a lifeguard on duty when a singularly large and greasy wave swelled out from the sea of the American Dream, lapped up on shore, elevated a few, killed many others, and, for the rest of us, got a bit of sand between our toes...
