PTF sits down David Hill, the author of the acclaimed book The Vapors: A Southern Family, the New York Mob, and the Rise and Fall of Hot Springs America’s Forgotten Capital of Vice.
The two talk about David’s education via the Eighth Poll Gang at Oaklawn Park, the genesis of the new book, the history of Hot Springs, and how the process of writing the book has made him reevaluate his own family history.
To order the book, you can find a local independent bookseller here, or you can order from Goliath here.
