Nick Tosches Reader by Nick Tosches

Book Description

Newsday has said that Nick Tosches "casts brilliant black light." The San Diego Reader has said that "Tosches's best sentences uncoil like rattlesnakes and strike with a venom that spreads poison through all the little Sunday-school ideas you've held dear." And Rolling Stone has said that "Tosches can write like a wild rockabilly raveup. He can be elegant as a slow blues." The Nick Tosches Reader is the author's own selection of his best work over the past thirty years, including fiction, poetry, interviews, rock writing, investigative journalism, and criticism. First published in major magazines, obscure underground periodicals, and his own best-selling books, many of these selections deal with rock 'n' roll and cultural icons--but there are also pieces on everything from William Faulkner to organized crime to heavyweight boxing, including the Vanity Fair feature that gave rise to Tosches's major new book on Sonny Liston, published by Little, Brown. Here is "a unique and darkly impressionistic cultural history" of the last three decades as only Nick Tosches could write it.

Books By Author Nick Tosches

Nightmare Alley by Nick Tosches Nightmare Alley, Paperback (August 2010)

Nightmare Alley begins with an extraordinary description of a freak-show geek-alcoholic and abject and the object of the voyeuristic crowd's gleeful disgust and derision-going about his work at a county fair.

King of the Jews by Nick Tosches King of the Jews, Paperback / softback (April 2006)

This is the sprawling biography of Arnold Rothstein, a mythical New Yorker who was the inspiration for Meyer Wolfsheim in "The Great Gatsby" and Nathan Detroit in "Guys and Dolls." Rothstein was also rumored to be the mastermind of the Black Sox scandal, the fixing of the 1919 World Series.
