Literary Nonfiction. California Studies. History. Urban Design. Art. Poetry. Cinema. Edited by Guy Bennett and Béatrice Mousli. "How do you fit seventeen million people, eight thousand square miles, eighty-eight languages, and just as many religions, cuisines, traditions, etc., into a single poem? How do you present accurate facts and figures for a place in constant flux: three million newcomers each year, somewhat fewer deserters, constant earth movements, recurring natural disasters, and the resultant, inevitable shifts in physical and demographic boundaries?" SEEING LOS ANGELES offers nineteen contemplations on this elusive city, "collectively revealing the current shape of a city commonly referred to as shapeless."—Béatrice Mousli
