What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"
In one volume [Banham] does the near-impossible: He makes us see this fragmented city [of Los Angeles] as a breathing whole."—Los Angeles Magazine

"Still as penetrating now as when Banham completed his observations on the city in 1971."—La Observed

"Banham wrote like a blissed-out lover, surrendering to his feelings of derangement and wonder while keeping his eyes wide-open."—Los Angeles Times

"Banham's book has remained au courant." —Palisadian Post
