Las Vegas author Andrew Kiraly unveils Crit...

If you were looking for something to do in Downtown Las Vegas tonight well here it is. Local magazine editor, writer, author and downright awesome, fabulous, cool and even sexy Andrew Kiraly will be launching his much-anticipated novel Crit, about rock 'n' roll, Las Vegas, shoplifting and lounge singers. In addition Andrew will be revealing the finalists for the band-name contest who will appear in the book. With over 400 entries Andrew had his work cut out for him! There will also be a special cocktail unveiled just for the occasion. I hear it has something to do with a Black Eye? Who knows...

Much of the local culturati is expected to turn up for what could be easily considered one of the hottest social events of the year.

About the book -
Crit, by Andrew Kiraly, is a novel about notorious L.A. rock critic Gabe Sack. After he decides to quit his job, Gabe Sack’s final assignment is a heart-of-darkness journey to the bright lights of Sin City, where he’s supposed to pen a withering profile of a legendary lounge singer, Hambert Larkin. But in that land of cheap fakes and grand illusions, Gabe discovers that Hambert Larkin is much more than just a target for an easy hit piece. In Las Vegas, Gabe realizes that redemption can come in the most unlikely places, that frauds and thieves can be saviors in disguise – and that dive-bar karaoke just might save your life. Crit, published by the Stephens Press imprint, CityLife Books, is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of what happens when a rock critic takes the ultimate gamble – and reviews himself.
