There's absolutely, positively nowhere else like it - the fastest-growing city in America: Las Vegas. Sexy, rich, greedy, gorgeous, endlessly entertaining, unpredictable, garish, honky-tonk, surreal - she lies at the heart, soul and wallet of American culture. Susan Berman grew up alongside Las Vegas, maturing with the city. But devotion to the city - at a time when gangsters drilled each other with bullets and decapitated their enemies - cost Susan's father Davie Berman his life, and soon afterwards her mother took her own life in sorrow.Part memoir, part history, part journalistic exposi, Lady Las Vegas is the story of a girl living in the shadow of a sexier, glitzier older sister, a creature with a thousand charms.
