I've recently been enjoying novels set mainly in Southern California such as The White Boy Shuffle and How To Get Into The Twin Palms. I've also been following So Cal fires and oil spills, and I'm even getting e-mail on L.A. social-justice "gap year" programs.
So, naturally, I took it all as a sign that I was due to link and list:
The White Boy Shuffle by Paul Beatty
Chump Change by Dan Fante
Ask The Dust by John Fante
The Road To Los Angeles by John Fante
The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon
The Player by Michael Tolkien
How To Get Into The Twin Palms by Karolina Waclawiak
Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski
Fante by Dan Fante
I'll add links and other books soon, but please feel free to note your own in a comment.
