King Of The Hilton

Anne E. Nixon collected her memories of the 40 or so Vegas shows she attended and wrote them all down in a book, together with Richard Harvey. Is it worth getting?


Obviously the choice has fallen on an affordable book and rightfully so, since there are plenty of glossy - unpayable - books, the content is what counts. Still the paragraphing and page layout makes the reading easy on the eye, except when the text is floating around a picture, then you have the feeling of watching a ping-pong game sometimes. All pictures are in black and white.


To me Anne’s recollections are something from my youth, a kind of sentimental journey. I remember reading them in the Monthly, which was available in bookstores, even in The Netherlands. Still I like her down to earth (in general) observation of the shows. It’s not a critical review in general, only in the case of the Sherill ‘Singing Saw’ Nielsen, on which I wholeheartedly agree. I am still jealous, nothing changed there. It seems the information is ‘upgraded’ with other information (from CDs), but it still has the feel of a firsthand report.


A nice recollection of memories that gave a real pleasant read, so to answer the question before: Yes, this book is certainly worth its money!
