P. Moss' VEGAS KNOCKOUT to be Released 9/6
Longtime Las Vegan P Moss searches for the soul of a city built on vice in his new novel-in-stories VEGAS KNOCKOUT (CityLife Books, September 6, 2012, $14.95). In the follow-up to his popular 2010 book BLUE VEGAS, Moss explores the most existential questions of the neon oasis and its inherently dark, wild and uproarious nature.
Frenzy in the valley comes to a boiling point as the fight of a lifetime nears between the most popular heavyweight boxing champion in a century and a notoriously vicious challenger who has already killed once in the ring. Visitors and locals alike are buzzing about the fight: media and movie stars, hucksters and hookers, pickpockets and paparazzi.
As the financial, emotional, and moral stakes rise for a cast of bizarre and grotesque characters, including a young journalist on the make, a rich man’s daughter with a very dirty secret, a nightlife kingpin, and a clown who wants waffles, those characters find themselves asking and answering fundamental questions about the nature of Las Vegas and its unique people.
The release of VEGAS KNOCKOUT will be celebrated with a special launch party, September 6 at the world-famous Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, where Portland-based indie rock band Attack Ships On Fire will perform songs from its third full-length album, Vegas Soul (SquidHat Records). The album, featuring songs inspired by VEGAS KNOCKOUT, will be offered as a free digital download to anyone who purchases the book. Both the book and the album will be available on Amazon and from major local retailers, September 6. For more information about Moss’ books, visit PMossBooks.com.
