Daughters of the Wasteland
By Eve Babitz
“‘Wasteland’ is a word I don’t understand,” Eve Babitz writes in the opening chapter of her memoir Eve’s Hollywood. The “curious remark” works neither as a physical description—due to the flowers and citrus trees she encounters all over her hometown—nor as a cultural one, as “L.A. has always been a humid jungle alive with seething L.A. projects.” Eve’s Hollywood is in the mold of classic L.A. autobiographical essay collections, like those by Joan Didion or Anaïs Nin; she may be watching the Watts Riots from the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont, but she shares with you her view.
