Review:

"Absolutely fascinating."--William Gibson"Few books shed as much light on their subjects as this opinionated and original excavation of Los Angeles from the mythical debris of its past and future."--"San Francisco Examiner""A history as fascinating as it is instructive."--Peter Ackroyd, "The Times"

From the Publisher:

'Courageously broad in its scope, City of Quartz changes intellectual gear - from history to sociology to urban theory - often with consummate ease, and fits its diverse threads together in a sort of 'history noir' as gripping as any Chandler. ' Listener.
