Common Good Books will have copies available for purchase at the launch. A presentation by Fallon will begin at 6 pm with mingling and book signing to follow.
"Unfairly maligned as a cultural wasteland, the Los Angeles of the 1970s was actually home to a stunning array of artists and art scenes that channeled the disillusionment of the era - and the myriad challenges of life in the sprawling, smog-choked city - into work that was powerful, enduring, and profoundly influential. Kudos to Michael Fallon for shining a brilliant and well-deserved spotlight upon this fascinating period."
– Dan Epstein, author of Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging ’70s
