by George W. Herald
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was published in 1963 and is the history of Monte Carlo and its famous casino. Aristotle Onassis ran the casino at that point, and was involved in a somewhat scandalous affair with opera singer Maria Callas. Primarily this book is a bit of political history mixed into a lot of colorful tabloid tales of the rich and famous. It was entertaining, though not particularly deep.
This book counts toward two of my 2018 reading challenges: the Nonfiction Reading Challenge and the European Reading Challenge (for Monaco).
