City of Quartz: Excavating the Future in Los Angeles by Mike Davis "As central to the L.A. canon as anything that Carey McWilliams wrote in the forties or Joan Didion wrote in the seventies." –New Yorker In City of Quartz, Davis reconstructs LA’s shadow history and dissects its ethereal economy. He tells us who has the power and how they hold on to it. He gives us a city of Dickensian extremes, Pynchonesque conspiracies, and a desperation straight out of Nathaniel West—a city in which we may glimpse our own future mirrored with terrifying clarity. In this new edition, Davis provides a dazzling update on the city’s current status. Softcover published by Verso in 2006. Very good condition despite one crease on cover. Shipping is $4.00.
