[spine slightly turned, moderate dust-soiling to top edge, previous owner's signature on ffep; jacket shows minor surface wear, light soiling (mostly to rear panel)]. A multi-generational, multi-ethnic novel of Los Angeles, spanning the 1880's through World War II, "a story whose color, violence, and drama are equaled only by the history of Los Angeles itself." The authorial bio blurb on the jacket is a great joke, stating that Ms. Highland "was born in Shanghai, was a Van de Kamp's waitress, studied demotic Greek in Thessaloniki, and is a Rhodes scholar. Although she has published widely during her long and varied life, her many-faced personality has coalesced for the first time in the writing of [this novel]."
