Robert Crais: To Write in L.A.

“The Los Angeles Times determined we have 114 separate and distinct neighborhoods here in Los Angeles. The city has posted several hundred blue signs naming far more. L.A. is a mash-up of uncountable, diverse neighborhoods spread over 465 square miles; hard and soft, painted in colors from concrete gray and security bar black to putting lawn green and jacaranda snowfall purple; beautiful, mysterious, dangerous, welcoming neighborhoods, soundtracked by the music of more languages than you or I or even the Los Angeles Times can count.”

Novelist Robert Crais draws from perspectives both near and far to uncover a city rich in mystery and opportunities in his recent piece for the L.A. Times, A Story to Find on Every Street.
