Product Overview

Los Angeles has a tantalizing hold on the American imagination. Its self-magnifying myths encompass Hollywood glamour, Arcadian landscapes, and endless summer, but also the apocalyptic undertow of riots, environmental depredation, and natural disaster. This Companion traces the evolution of Los Angeles as the most public staging of the American Dream ? and American nightmares. The expert contributors make exciting, innovative connections among the authors and texts inspired by the city, from the early Spanish settlers to contemporary literature. Diverse, vibrant, and Challenging as the city itself, this Companion is the definitive guide to LA in literature.
