Four women's lives are connected (loosely) around a second-tier Las Vegas casino in McBride's latest novel. The novel powerfully explores various aspects of the female experience--as an immigrant, mother, daughter, lover, entrepreneur, though the novel strains a little too far to connect these disparate stories. I particularly enjoyed the novel's depiction of the evolution of Las Vegas.
