Twenty-nine authors explore Pasadena and its environs in this anthology of contemporary fiction
The historic, handsome city east of Los Angeles has served as home or creative inspiration to countless writers and artists since the Arroyo Arts & Crafts scene of the early twentieth century. This volume gathers an extraordinary array of authors, each discovering his or her muse by writing about this special area and the challenges and triumphs of its diverse population. Contributors include beloved bestselling authors as well as talented newcomers whose work is introduced here for the first time. All have found an original literary vision in Pasadena.
Literary Pasadena features an introduction by Michelle Huneven, the author of three critically acclaimed novels, most recently Blame, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and one of the Ten Terrific Reads of the year for O, the Oprah Magazine. An Altadena native who lives there still, she contributed the foreword to the collection, as well as a work of short fiction.
Editor Patricia O’Sullivan is the associate publisher at Prospect Park Books and has lived in the shadow of the San Gabriel mountains for more than twenty years.
