Nick Tosches: The ESQ&A
SR: Of all the books you've written, Dino, your biography of Dean Martin, is the one I keep rereading.
NT: Dino amazes me. That book is 20 years old now. It's sold every day for 20 years.
SR: It doesn't surprise me.
NT: It surprised me it was Dino. I like The Devil and Sonny Liston better, but part of me actually thinks fewer people read it because it's about a black guy.
