Clubland Confidential is the true story of an English journalist following the key New York club owners and promoters, from the peak of their success to their subsequent sinking into the mire, ending in arrests for murder and drug dealing on a massive scale. It brilliantly captures the feel of contemporary New York, where the slick gangsters of a Scorsese movie mingle with the trendy urbanites of a Bret Easton Ellis novel. Characters like:--Chris Paciello, Mafioso-turned-glamour boy: he ran the most exclusive club in Miami, dating Madonna and Jennifer Lopez, until his past caught up with him--Michael Alig, professional party freak: he created a youth movement in his own image then ensured his immortality with one extraordinary act--Peter Gatien, club owner: an enigmatic, one-eyed voyeur whose venues were drug havens; he beat racketeering charges amid outrageous government misconductFrank Owen, the author spent the last ten years with these, and many other, stranger-than-fiction characters. Clubland Confidential is an epic, cinematic, inside story of ambition, addiction, corruption and murder amongst the nightlife kings.
