Book Description

Feb. 4 2011
With the debut of Slake: Los Angeles this summer, a fresh voice took root in Southern California. Slake: Los Angeles is a new quarterly journal co-founded by former LA Weekly editors Joe Donnelly and Laurie Ochoa. Now the editors are back with a second issue centered around the theme of Crossing Over. Slake: Los Angeles is devoted to the endangered art of deeply reported narrative journalism and the kind of polished essay, memoir, fiction, poetry and portrait writing that is disappearing in a world of instant takes and unfiltered opinion. Slake marks a return to storytelling. Designed with an artist's eye and published in a full-color, perfect-bound format, Slake: Los Angeles sets a new template for the next generation of print publications -- collectible, not disposable; destined for the bedside table instead of the recycling bin; and so seductive in its looks and content that readers find it irresistible. Most important are the voices of Slake, some of the nation's finest writers, photographers and artists who live in Southern California and bring to SLAKE their own individual visions of Los Angeles and the world beyond.

Review

"The new quarterly journal whose editors have essentially flipped the bird at the faster-quicker-shorter imperatives that are supposed to define 21st-century media." --James Rainey, LA Times
