Los Angeles in fiction : a collection of original essays by David M Fine( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important collection of essays on the writers who have made Los Angeles one of the great cities of twentieth-century literature has been made even stronger by the inclusion of three new essays. John Fante, Walter Mosley, and Chester Himes join Aldous Huxley, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Evelyn Waugh, Nathanael West, Norman Mailer, James M. Cain, Ross Macdonald, Raymond Chandler, Budd Schulberg, Joan Didion, John Gregory Dunne, and Thomas Pynchon as well as less familiar writers - Oscar Zeta Acosta, Horace McCoy, Thomas Sanchez, Marc Norman, and Hysaye Yamamoto - in a text that provides a basic literary history of the region. Thoughtful consideration is given to such special Los Angeles genres as the detective story and the Hollywood novel, and a chapter is devoted to the film Chinatown
The city, the immigrant, and American fiction, 1880-1920 by David M Fine( Book )

7 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagining Los Angeles : a city in fiction by David M Fine( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The promotional literature that lured sun-starved Midwesterners to Southern California in the 1880s hyped the region as the New Eden. But the novelists who created our vision of Los Angeles soon began to see it as Dystopia rather than Utopia, a corrupt, unreal city foreshadowing and reflecting all that is wrong with America. David Fine traces the history of the place through the work of the authors who have defined it in our imaginations."--Jacket
Unknown California( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

San Francisco in fiction : essays in a regional literature( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twelve essays included here explore the relationship between place and prose - between San Francisco the city and San Francisco the territory of fiction. From the Gold Rush times of Mark Twain and Bret Harte, through the Prohibition Era of Dashiell Hammett to the Beat days of Jack Kerouac and the present works of writers like Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, and Arturo Islas, San Francisco has been blessed with great writers who have given life to the land in their fiction. These essays engage the history and geography, ethnic, gender, and class conflicts, and stylistic range of the fiction. They demonstrate how authors as various as Jack London, Gertrude Atherton, Frank Norris, William Saroyan, James D. Houston, Joan Didion, and Wallace Stegner have re-created and revised our understanding of this region
