The Poetry Circus

The Poetry Circus

Well, the “poetic rides” are free at Griffith Park’s historical and restored merry-go-round on September 19, at The Poetry Circus. Favorite local writers and poets will be reading such as Ron Koertge, Kim Dower, Nicelle Davis, Douglas Kearney, […]

The Perfect Gift: A Book

The Perfect Gift: A Book

One of our favorite things to do, and we mean favorite of all time, is to make a cup of Irish Breakfast tea, let is steep until it’s dark and rich, then add a pinch of whole fat milk, followed by wrapping our hands around our favorite mug—which at the moment is one from local […]

Sex World by Ron Koertge

Sex World by Ron Koertge

“He teases out lyricism from the most mundane words, and significance from the most mundane situations,” says author Gene Yang. He is speaking about Ron Koertge, the highly prolific South Pasadenan author who’s newest book is a collection of flash fiction titled Sex World. The title story, it turns out, isn’t about sex at all […]

LitFest on the Prowl

LitFest on the Prowl

Times’ Arts & Entertainment Editor Laurie Ochoa about Reichl’s debut novel Delicious, followed by a discussion about “the state of food culture” with Taco U.S.A. author Gustavo Arellano.

Koertge at Boston Court

Koertge at Boston Court

The drive is okay:  A.C. on high (it’s torrid in Los Angeles, with the usual muslin-yellow sky), radio up, some gratifying amiable/envious/admiring/lubricious glances. At the mall, she has to park at the top of a new structure, following a ramp so circuitous it’s like an inner ear. Is she going to emerge under the invisible […]

Car Wash in Echo Park

Car Wash in Echo Park

Just me, the kid, and random vatos hosing down our precious autos. A carvac hiccups, coughs and whines. With hard work, fenders almost shine. A single boom box emits notes, and from our unsuspecting throats the dark blue of a song we know rises like a u.f.o. We belt it out. Then almost blush, lean […]
