Jonathan Kirsch peruses the newest anthology of L.A. literature, The Misread City: New Literary Los Angeles, and writes in the L.A. Times Book Review that editors Scott Timberg and Dana Gioia "have succeeded magnificently."
The publisher, Red Hen Press, is the home of The Los Angeles Review, which is set to publish for the first time in January. Says the website: The Los Angeles Review will be the voice of Los Angeles, and the voice of the nation. We will not have one editor who chooses work based on their idiosyncratic tastes, but instead will bring in a variety of editors for each issue. Editors on the first issue include Kate Gale, Marc Cooper and Doug Dutton.
