Summary, etc.: Dozens of characters pass across the listener's consciousness -- but James Frey lingers on a handfull of LA's lost souls and captures the dramatic narrative of their lives: a bright young Mexican-American woman who allows her future to be undone by a moment of searing humiliation; a narcissistic action-movie star whose passion for the unattainable object of his affection nearly destroys him; a couple, both 19 years old, who flee their suffocating hometown and struggle to survive on the fringes of the great city; and an aging Venice Beach alcoholic whose life is turned upside down when a teenaged meth-addled girl shows up half-dead outside the restroom he calls home. Throughout this strikingly powerful novel, there is the relentless drumbeat of the millions of other stories that, taken as a whole, describe a city, a culture, and an age.
