Read in September, 1993

Anyone thinking about writing a biography about Dean Martin, forget about it. "Dino" isn't hard to beat, it's downright impossible. The inexhaustible biography on Dino covers every facet of his career, from the Jerry Lewis sidekick days to his great TV show to his surprisingly successful movie career to the goofy Matt Helm spy films, "Dino" runs 652 pages and never gets boring, just like Mr. Martin himself.

Jesse I read this book in 1994 or '95, when I was living in Vegas and working as a craps dealer. This is Touches' best book, far and away, and one of my favorite books that I have ever read. He really captures the mysterious and ineffable. triple gravity pull of Las Vegas nihilism.
