Tales from The Strip: A Century in the Fast Lane is a thought-provoking--and riotous--amble from Doheny to Crescent Heights on America's most famous strip: Sunset.

From its legendary hotels and clubs to its notorious mobsters to its thriving intellectual haunts, life on the Strip from its earliest days makes Tales from The Strip a path of plenty--direct from the keyboard of journalist and raconteur Van Gordon Sauter, with visuals created,researched, curated, and designed by Robert Landau and Frans Evenhuis. The combination is a remarkable romp along Sunset, right into today's landscape, where even Frank Gehry is taking a twenty-first-century hand at shaping the scene.

For everyone who ever danced at the Whisky, bought spats at gangster Mickey Cohen's haberdashery, longed to go to the Playboy Club, frolicked at the Roxy, tangoed at Ciro's, rocked and rolled at Tower Records, or rubbed shoulders with Sir Eltonat Book Soup, this book is your book, ready to take you cruising The Strip. The Sunset Strip, of course.
