The Urban Man: Staying Human In L.A.
Each week on National Public Radio station KCRW, The Urban Man sets out to fathom modern life in the megalopolis-he cruises its cluttered boulevards and shows up at its TV shoots; he sleeps in its picture-perfect mini-mansions, takes meetings in its glittering office towers, and goes looking for a glimpse of the moon up among the billboards and power lines. Along the way, he tries to figure out what it all means. For the first time, the best of Marc Porter Zasada's short pieces, famous for their incisive wit and gorgeous prose, have been pulled together in one place. Some have been expanded, and some have been created just for this collection. Anyone who has a love/hate relationship with L.A.- in fact anyone who struggles with the slippery logic of life anywhere in the 21st Century-will find this little volume impossible to put down.
