Pressestimmen

'Murphet brilliantly peels away the hype to expose the racial inferno of Los Angeles history.' Mike Davis 'This is a gripping, compulsive book. In its reading of the literary readings of Los Angeles offered by thriller writers, poets, and performance artists, Murphet makes a decisive contribution to the body of work that [...] we have started to think of as LA studies. The book itself is commandingly written, each sentence deeply-pondered and finely tuned.' Stephen Connor
