Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Literary L.A. — the book and the city — is a rich blend of diverse strands and contrasting textures. Those who helped to weave this literary tapestry were — like many who wound up being representative of Los Angeles — often transients: literary gypsies in imposed or self-imposed exile. Among the literary figures discussed in this latest edition of Literary L.A. are Oscar Zeta Acosta, Charles Bukowski, Henry Miller, Ken Kesey, Carey McWilliams, Charles Lummis, Jacob Zeitlin, Louis Adamic, Nathanael West, Robinson Jeffers, Malcolm Lowry, Thomas and Heinrich Mann, Upton Sinclair, John Steinbeck, Aldous Huxley, Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, and many others.
