Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193504348X, Paperback)Notorious L.A. rock critic Gabe Sack is tired. Tired of knee-jerk cynicism. Tired of hating everything on principle. Tired of wrecking bands and relationships with his venom-tipped tongue. Tired of getting black eyes and fat lips from angry musicians.There's just one thing standing between him and retirement: Las Vegas. 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 is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of what happens when a rock critic takes the ultimate gamble - and reviews himself.
