Summary

The 1970s were a heyday for Los Angeles. Hollywood was being revolutionized, the music business was booming, and authors like Joan Didion were producing great novels about the realities of living in the land of eternal sunshine. In Los Angeles in the 1970s great writers muse on the city in its classic decade. Featuring John Densmore on being a rock star, Matthew Specktor's reflections on The Z Channel, Deanne Stillman on the desert, and many, many more.

This is an insider's look at what being an Angeleno was then and is now.

Anyone with interest in the music industry or film industry of the 1970s will love Los Angeles in the 1970s. It will also appeal to anyone who loves the history of Laurel Canyon, reading about the ever-changing culture and landscape of Southern California, and those that just want to read new and established writers.
