Eve Babitz

Eve`s Hollywood

€ 17.95


`Journalist, party girl, bookworm, muse, artist: by the time she`d hit thirty, Eve Babitz had been all of these things. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing Duchamp over a chessboard and as one of Ed Ruscha`s Five 1965 Girlfriends, it turns out that Babitz was a writer with stories of her own. In Eve`s Hollywood she gives us indelible snapshots of southern California`s haute bohemians, of surpassingly lovely high school ingenues (`people with brains went to New York and people with faces came West`) and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of burnt-out rock stars in the Chateau Marmont. In her deceptively conversational prose, we are brought along on a ride through an LA of perpetual delight: to a joint serving the perfect taquito, to the corner of La Brea and Sunset where we make eye contact with a rollerskating hooker, through the Watts Towers, and shopping at Central Market. This `daughter of the wasteland` is here to show us that her city is no wasteland at all, but a glowing landscape, swaying with fruit trees and bougainvillea, buffeted by earthquakes and Santa Ana winds. By the end, there is little doubt that Babitz herself is proof there`s more to Hollywood than meets the eye`-
