6 great crime novels set in Southern California – Daily NewsLast week, Kate Gale blogged about some of the essential literary works set in LA , and our readers had a lot to add. Here are some of their recommendations:. It was overwhelmingly recommended by our readers. Elagabal said:. City of Quartz is a fantastic and infuriating read, a brutal and lively account of a city and its endless suburbs produced by real estate speculation and conflicts between elites. A shame, as the city and its surroundings have continued to undergone massive changes, and to be sclerotic and scintillating at the same time: congested freeways, massive real estate price inflation, absurd wealth on one side of the city and deprivation on the other, racial conflict and exhilarating cultural hybridity. Los Angeles-born Bret Easton Ellis set several of his works in Los Angeles, but two of his books were recommended repeatedly by our readers.
