Before his untimely death in 1994, John O'Brien penned the brilliant Leaving Las Vegas, which was made into a Golden Globe Award-winning film starring Nicholas Cage. In this manuscript found after his death, five men--all committed drinkers--are caught inside Tony's bar while a race riot rages outside. Against this backdrop, a weird drama plays out as the supply of booze slowly dwindles.
"(O'Brien takes) us deep into an alcoholic's world that few others have described so well." (The New York Times Book Review)
