This slim book, lovingly reissued by New York Review Books, is a remarkable document of a vanished Los Angeles, a city which is always a bit of a dream, although in a very different way than New York City. Eve Babitz was something of an it girl who designed album covers for the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield, played chess naked with Marcel Duchamp, embraced hedonism with charm and wit, and seemed to know just about everyone. This book is billed as a novel but is based on her experiences and written in a sort of deadpan confessional style. Deserves to be as much as an L.A. classic as better know worked by Didion, Chandler, and Bukowski. Also see "Eve's Hollywood."
