EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman will be signing his new autobiography, Being Oscar: From Mob Lawyer to Mayor of Las Vegas, at McCarran Las Vegas International Airport on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. He will be signing at the pre-Security Hudson News store in Terminal 1 from 10 a.m. to Noon, and the post-Security Hudson News in Terminal 3 from 1 to 3 p.m.
Being Oscar is the first-person saga of the former Mayor, who made a career defending Mafia figures before going into politics. He became a legendary figure in Las Vegas political circles, first as Mayor and now as an official spokesperson for the city. Goodman has been married for the past 51 years to current Mayor Carolyn Goodman. His legacy: transforming a struggling downtown area into a vibrant new cultural destination. The book will likely be turned into a movie in the near future.
In the book, the former Mayor, who served for 12 years, explains his rationale for a range of controversial decisions: becoming a Mob lawyer, championing legalized drugs and prostitution and taking on everyone from President Obama to the NFL.
As Goodman himself has noted: "It's been a great run, and the beauty of it all is that it's not over. Life is still full for both Carolyn and me."
Published May 21 by Weinstein Books, the 312-page book is priced at $26.
