Review

Review:
"A hilarious, chilling, thoroughly scabrous history of post-war pop music in Los Angeles...dry sarcasm and terse, slashing commentary color [Hoskyns's] fascinating portrait of the California sound and its epic tragicomedy." --Stephen M.H. Braitman, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"The entire history of pop Los Angeles in all its splendor and excess: a dark drive deep into the city of the night." --Jon Savage, author of England's Dreaming

"A detailed, oft-biting book, eschewing a simple narrative approach to encompass the complex business and social forces the shaped a half-century of music." --Chris Morris, Billboard

"An impressively researched and energetically written history of LA's place in contemporary culture, as well as a chronicle of how the city of dreams has so often turned itself into a city of nightmare. Hoskyns writes with awesome command over his wide-ranging material." --Steve Grant, Time Out
