On Writing Grandissimo | UNLV News Center

I have a little piece on UNLV’s Newscenter about why it’s important to preserve the past:

Since my latest book, Grandissimo, came out, people have asked me why I wrote it. The simple answer is that Jay Sarno was the most interesting person in Las Vegas history not to have a book already written about him. But the process of researching and writing it reminded me of how important it is to preserve our past — even the parts that don’t seem immediately important.

There’s also a hint about a project I’m currently working on, if you are interested.
