About the Author

Timothy O'Grady was born in Chicago and has lived in Ireland, London, Spain and Poland. He went to Las Vegas after receiving a fellowship from the Black Mountain Institute and stayed on for another year to teach. That is when he met the 'children of Las Vegas' whose stories appear in this book. He is the author of three novels, Motherland, I Could Read the Sky and Light, and three works of non-fiction, Curious Journey, On Golf and, most recently, Divine Magnetic Lands. Children of Las Vegas is his second collaboration with photographer Steve Pyke.


Steve Pyke is considered one of the leading portrait photographers in the world. His work, including the series Philosophers and Astronauts, has been exhibited worldwide. He has published nine books, and for the past forty years he has worked consistently on a series collecting the 'Faces of Our Time'. In 2004 Steve received the MBE in the Queen's New Year Honours list for his services to the Arts, and in 2006 he was made a Friend of the Royal Photographic Society. He lives in New Orleans.
