Sophie, a twenty-something Jim Morrison groupie gliding through a golden existence in L.A., and Lola, a German immigrant who has settled in Hollywood, know that while Los Angeles is constantly changing, it is essentially eternal. The two women dazzle - one with the promises of youth, the other with the fulfilment of nostalgia - as they wend their way through the pink sunsets and the palm trees of Los Angeles.
Living out their addictively decadent lives, Sophie and Lola are cult writer Babitz's literary embodiment of the iconic L.A. Woman - more than in part inspired by her own wild and hedonistic youth.

and infuriating – it’s a slacker siren song, a novel about writers and writing
and a heavenly holiday to ’70s LA all at once”
pleasure – a perpetual-motion machine of no-stakes elation and champagne fizz”
style is cool, conversational, loose, yet weighted with a seemingly effortless
glamorous, toxic and intoxicating”
