"Babitz's talent for the brilliant line, honed to a point, never interferes with her feel for languid pleasures." -The New York Times Book Review A new reissue of Babitz's collection of nine stories that look back on the 1980s and early 1990s-decades of dreams, drink, and glimpses of a changing world. Black Swans further celebrates the phenomenon of Eve Babitz, cementing her reputation as the voice of a generation. "On the page, Babitz is pure pleasure-a perpetual-motion machine of no-stakes elation and champagne fizz." -The New Yorker "[A] true original." -The Boston Globe "She's a natural. Or gives every appearance of being one, her writing elevated yet slangy, bright, bouncy, cheerfully hedonistic-L.A. in it purest, most idealized form." -Vanity Fair "Babitz's writing is also like the jacaranda tree in glorious bloom-bewitching an entire city, but all too brief." -Los Angeles Review of Books
