Fiction. California Interest. Tim Kirk writes and edits a collection of stories set in a world where THE FERAL BOY WHO LIVES IN GRIFFITH PARK exists. The largest urban park in the nation, dwarfing New York's Central Park by five-to-one, is the fertile ground where new myths and legends grow. A murderous western swing guitarist, a golf caddie turned tabloid writer, a pair of tweakers at their first parent support group, a suicidal father taking his last hike, and other stories span the decades of life in Los Angeles. Featuring stories by David Carpenter, Patrick Cooper, Rob Zabrecky, Steve Newman, Tim Davis, and Josh Lawson.
