520    A rich mosaic of diary entries and letters from Marilyn 
       Monroe, Cesar Chavez, Susan Sontag, Albert Einstein, and 
       many more, this is the story of Los Angeles as told by 
       locals, transplants, and some just passing through. The 
       City of Angels has played a distinct role in the hearts, 
       minds, and imaginations of millions of people, who see it 
       as the ultimate symbol of the American Dream. David Kipen,
       a cultural historian and avid scholar of Los Angeles, has 
       scoured libraries, archives, and private estates to 
       assemble a kaleidoscopic view of a truly unique city. From
       the Spanish missionary expeditions in the early 1500s to 
       the Golden Age of Hollywood to the strange new world of 
       social media, this collection is a slice of life in L.A. 
       through the years. The pieces are arranged by date-January
       1st to December 31st-featuring selections from different 
       decades and centuries. What emerges is a vivid tapestry of
       insights, personal discoveries, and wry observations that 
       together distill the essence of the city. As sprawling and
       magical as the city itself, Dear Los Angeles is a 
       fascinating, must-have collection for everyone in, from, 
       or touched by Southern California. With excerpts from the 
       writing of Ray Bradbury - Edgar Rice Burroughs - Octavia 
       E. Butler - Italo Calvino - Winston Churchill - Noel 
       Coward - Simone De Beauvoir - James Dean - T. S. Eliot - 
       William Faulkner - Lawrence Ferlinghetti - Richard Feynman
       - F. Scott Fitzgerald - Allen Ginsberg - Dashiell Hammett 
       - Charlton Heston - Zora Neale Hurston - Christopher 
       Isherwood - John Lennon - H. L. Mencken - Anais Nin - 
       Sylvia Plath - Ronald Reagan - Joan Rivers - James Thurber
       - Dalton Trumbo - Evelyn Waugh - Tennessee Williams - P. 
       G. Wodehouse - and many more Advance praise for Dear Los 
       Angeles "This book's a brilliant constellation, spread out
       over a few centuries and five thousand square miles. Each 
       tiny entry pins the reality of the great unreal city of 
       Angels to a moment in human time-moments enthralled, 
       appalled, jubilant, suffering, gossiping or bragging-and 
       it turns out, there's no better way to paint a picture of 
       the place."-Jonathan Lethem "[A] scintillating collection 
       of letters and diary entries . . . an engrossing trove of 
       colorful, witty insights."-Publishers Weekly (starred
