Yesterday was my dear friend/sister's birthday. Being me I wanted to gift a book and rosé because in the summer there are no better combinations. I asked the bookseller for literary trash, and this is what I got. Now some may take offense to my calling this book trash but ice cream is also trash and still, it's my favorite food.
I adore books about old LA, the LA between the talkies and Regan, the golden, surfing years of LA, young Hollywood, the anti-New York. Babitz captures that jaded innocence in this perfect summery beach read that postures as vapid but has depths you wouldn't expect.
An LA born surfer girl finds her life unraveling as she is immersed in the world of the beautiful people. As she comes to terms with her alcoholism she has to make a dreaded trip to NYC to meet with her literary agent over the sale of her book.
