Oh, my! What a book.

The Secret History of Las Vegas: A NovelThe Secret History of Las Vegas: A Novel by Chris Abani

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, my!  What a book.  With principal characters which include a South African psychiatrist, an assassin, a law enforcement officer who urinates in public and builds beautiful model ships, a prostitute, and conjoined twins one would reasonably wonder how Chris Abani could possibly tie it all together.  And yet, he does just that with grace and depth.
