Vignettes based on the author's life in LA during the mid 60s through mid 70s. Perfect. I'd never heard of Babitz, had no preconceived notions of what to expect and was gobsmacked by how great the writing was. ( )

The book delivers on its promise--and then some. I read it twice in a single month, and participated at a local Hollywood book club (which added to this novel's mystique, as we discussed places mentioned in the book that are still alive and kicking). Eve's (and yes, I feel like I can speak of her using her first name, because of the intimacy shared within the pages of her novel) passion for life is something I both admire and respect. ( )
