2017 reissue of a 1997 novel. I read about it somewhere and it sounded interesting. Despite its energy and subject, I couldn't really get into it. Yamashita takes as her topic Los Angeles in all its sprawl, multiculturalism, ugliness, madness, and magic. Though its tagged as magical realism, I don't think it's a very accurate description. Parts of it reminded me of Paul Beatty's L.A. satire "White Boy Shuffle."
