Enter The Mirage Factory

New York Times-bestselling author Gary Krist (the 70th stranger featured on this site) most recently wrote “The Mirage Factory,” a marvelous non-fiction book tracking three notable figures during Los Angeles’ boom period from 1900 to 1930. The LA Times last week had praise for Gary’s work as part of a broader article discussing books that track the modern history of the city. Both the book and the article are worth your time, painting a fascinating picture of LA in the 20th century. Read more about Gary in my January 2015 dinner interview with him, and learn more about “The Mirage Factory” at his publisher Penguin Random House’s website.
