    One thought on “Where We Are Now: Notes from Los Angeles”

    1. A rather excellent collection of essays about life and growing up in Los Angeles from author D.J Waldie whom I ve always appreciated His recollection of living and growing up in the planned community of Lakewood is both poignant and important in order to understand the richness and vastness of what we call Los Angeles.

    2. This is a collection of essays about life in Southern California, alternately insightful and ponderous Waldie lives in the same house in Lakewood that he grew up in, and he doesn t drive a car Worth reading, but not before reading Carey McWilliams and Reyner Banham first.

    3. Waldie s precise hold of Los Angeles beating heart grips my own as he takes the readers deeper and deeper into the shadows of LA we often ignore.
