Book Description

May 20 2011
In this newest installment of Slake: Los Angeles, A City and Its Stories, editors Laurie Ochoa and Joe Donnelly gather War Stories -- personal and political, cultural and social, sometimes bloodless, sometimes violent -- centered on Los Angeles and beyond as told by some of the nation's finest writers and artists. 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. 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 journalism -- collectible, not disposable; destined for the bedside table instead of the recycling bin. Seductive in its looks and content, Slake marks a return to storytelling.

Review
