Becoming Bobby

He quit his job, abandoned his wife, and checked in at the Nirvana Casino.

In Michael Konik’s darkly satirical debut novel, an American Humbert Humbert is overwhelmed by fantasies of becoming a Vegas big shot.

Dubbed the “Dean of the World’s Gambling Writers,” Konik is a former Cigar Aficionado gaming columnist and TV poker analyst. The best-selling author of three acclaimed gambling-story collections, including The Man with the $100,000 Breasts, he brings his vast knowledge of the casino world to the pages of this viciously funny (and strangely inspiring) evisceration of our modern aspirational lifestyle.
