Los Angeles magazine

"The mix of short fiction, architectural criticism, creative nonfiction, photography, and even a recipe makes these two titles unique among the dozens of anthologies celebrating literary Los Angeles. Both titles are stand-alone collections, but the brief nature of most of the pieces make for quick reads that bring a new dimension to the city's literary canon"
--KCET (L.A.'s PBS station)

"While the format is perhaps casual, and the book accessible, this first volume's thematic focus is intense, vivid and thoughtful, obviously informed by research, affection, and a critical editorial process. There's a careful curation of voices here, each elaborating on, complicating, arguing for a perhaps previously unconsidered part of the Los Angeles story. Eclectic and revisionist, brave, and, yes, incredibly fun."
-- Bibliocracy, KPFK public radio Los Angeles
