“I was inordinately happy to hand the book over to the incandescently talented Annie Loui and her cast . . . and it does now indeed belong to the imagination of others, or to the unending possibility—both good and bad—that is Los Angeles.” – Michelle Latiolais, New York Times recommended author of She
