Genre


Matthew O'Brien is an author and journalist who's lived in Las Vegas since 1997. His first book, Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las Vegas, chronicles his adventures in the city's underground flood channels. His second book, My Week at the Blue Angel: And Other Stories from the Storm Drains, Strip Clubs, and Trailer Parks of Las Vegas, is a creative-nonfiction collection set in off-the-beaten-path Vegas. He's the founder of Shine a Light, a community project that provides housing, drug counseling, and other services to the people living in the drains.

Matthew O'Brien isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

I’m very excited to play a small role in, perhaps, introducing you to the work of Steve Fanell. You may not agree with what he says or how he says it, but you can’t deny the power of his pictures.
