Dino ? Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams
Nick Tosches
Dino is an extraordinary blend of cod-Chandler thriller and American social history. Tosches chronicles the rise of Dean Martin from gangster-ridden Steubenville to his heyday in gangster-ridden Vegas. The divorces, drinks, celebrity-roast shows of the 70s are all laid bare. Dino, a man seemingly unhindered by intellectual and emotional content, rode the showbiz rollercoaster with more concern for the glass in his hand than his friends, family or self-esteem. The book is as incisive a portrait of the struggle of Italian-Americans as it is of Dino‚s struggle to stay solvent or simply cling to the bar. A joy to read and a must for all lounge afficiandos.
