Describes a pivotal moment in Los Angeles history, when writers like Raymond Chandler, Nathanael West, and F.

San Francisco in the 1930s the WPA Guide to the City by the Bay by Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration of Northern California( file )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 549 libraries worldwide
"San Francisco has no single landmark by which the world may identify it," according to San Francisco in the 1930s, originally published in 1940. This would surely come as a surprise to the millions who know and love the Golden Gate Bridge or recognize the Transamerica Building's pyramid. This invaluable Depression-era guide to San Francisco relates the city's history from the vantage point of the 1930s, describing its culture and highlighting the important tourist attractions of the time. David Kipen's lively introduction revisits the city's literary heritage--from Bret Harte to Kenneth Rexrot
The schreiber theory : a radical rewrite of American film history by David Kipen( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 194 libraries worldwide
"Kipen's new heresy topples the old orthodoxy by studying the careers of screenwriters past and present in a witty, two-pronged attack: in part one, he dismantles the auteur theory and presents a convincing argument that screenwriters are the guiding creative geniuses behind the best films. In part two, he offers a compendium of mini-biographies of great screenwriters past and present. Who wrote Casablanca? Who wrote Twelve Monkeys? Who wrote Dead Girls Don't Tango? What else did they write?" "It all makes The Schreiber Theory an engaging read and a one-of-a-kind reference for movie lovers and film students alike."--BOOK JACKET
The dialogue of the dogs by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"Ever since I could chase a bone, I've longed to talk..." The first talking-dog story in Western literature--from the writer generally acknowledged, alongside William Shakespeare, as the founding father of modern literature, no less? Indeed, The Dialogue of the Dogs features, in a condensed, powerful version, all the traits the author of Don Quixote is famous for: It's a picaresque rich in bawdy humor, social satire, and fantasy, and it uses story tactics that were innovative at the time, such as the philandering husband who, given syphilis by his wife, is hospitalized. Late on feverish night he overhears the hospital's guard dogs telling each other their life's story--a wickedly ironic tale within the tale within the tale, wherein the two virtuous canines find themselves victim, time and again, to deceitful, corrupt humanity
