Los Angeles magazine, Best Books About L.A. 2018
“…a new dimension to the city’s literary canon.”
KCET Notable Books 2018
“… a comprehensive embrace of the city that has always resisted comprehension.”Paul Mandelbaum, L.A. Review of Books
“… intense, vivid and thoughtful, obviously informed by research, affection, and a critical editorial process. . . . and, yes, incredibly fun.”
KPFK Radio “Bibliocracy”

FB cover trio-2

There’s more to say about L.A. than fits into a single volume. Our series brings historic sweep, humor and fresh perspectives. Our selections come from novelists, journalists, eyewitnesses, cookbook authors, broadcasters, satirists, historians, publications of yesteryear, blogs of today, gearheads and activists, actors and songwriters.
