“Splendid essays on the city that has become the capital of America and the capitol of the Third World. Carolyn See captures the tone of ‘multicultural’ L.A. brilliantly. I nominate her for mayor! The others in this volume would make excellent candidates for the Board of Supervisors—each with his or her own part of the city.”
—Richard Rodriguez, author of Hunger of Memory
“No one should try to write a screenplay without reading ‘Rack’s Rules,’ Jeremy Larner’s brilliant piece is Sex, Death, and God in L.A.”
—Diane Johnson, author of The Shadow Knows, Dashiell Hammett: A Life, and Health and Happiness
“Carolyn See’s look at sex and history, culture and sensibility is brilliantly insightful, deeply touching and terrifically funny, almost all at once. And then there is David Thomson’s strange and beautiful, movie-haunted L.A., and Jeremy Larner’s wild and witty version of producer ‘morality’—all in all a wonderful book.”
—Alice Adams, author of After You’ve Gone and Caroline’s Daughters
