Celine Dion's Las Vegas stage show wrapped up over the weekend and the NY Times has a wrap-up.
The Toronto Globe and Mail published an excerpt from Carl Wilson's book on Celine as well, in which he describes his experience in Vegas to see Celine like so:
"I wandered in a haze through the gold towers and black pyramids, dancing water fountains, seizure-inducing signage and replicas of landmarks from cities where I'd rather have been, before slouching back to my room each night with a fifth of bourbon to watch pay-per-view. Muttering witticisms to myself got tired fast. I was a stray member of the cultural-capital tribe deported to a gaudy prison colony run by a phalanx of showgirls who held hourly re-education sessions to hammer me into feeling insignificant and micro-penised."CBC's "Q" program interviewed Carl on Friday.

The Montreal Gazette ran a great review of the book on Saturday.
"Let's Talk About Love is a rigorous, perceptive and very funny meditation on what happens when you realize that there's more to life than being hip, and begin to grapple with just what that "more" might be." --Montreal Gazette"The Mich Vish Interracial Morning Show" out of Guelph, Canada spoke with Carl on Thursday.
