Reviews

Advance praise for City at the Edge of Forever

"This is a luminous, engrossing book. Lunenfeld evokes all of the texture and complexity of Los Angeles in a wholly original way -- as both a real place and an imagined place, central to the American psyche." --Susan Orlean, author of The Library Book

"Here is a title to be added to the list of great meditations on Los Angeles. City at the Edge of Forever is a book about southern California but it is also a book about all of us, about how fringes become mainstream, how politics morphs into culture, and how culture mutates uncontrollably under the American sun." --Thomas Frank, author of What's the Matter with Kansas?
