453 S Spring St
Los Angeles, CA 90013
Please join the Los Angeles Review of Books for a special live Tom’s Book Club featuring The Obama Inheritance: Fifteen Stories of Conspiracy Noir and contributors Gary Phillips, Désirée Zamorano, Travis Richardson, and Danny Gardner in conversation with Tom Lutz and Steph Cha.
In The Obama Inheritance, noir meets diverse voices, transforming the genre into an over-the-top, transcendental psychedelic thriller ride of pulpy goodness. In the tradition of satirical works of Swift and Twain, with nods to the likes of William S. Burroughs, Isaac Asimov, and Philip K. Dick, these tales contain vigilante First Ladies, Supreme Court judges who can clone themselves, races of ancient lizard people, and gear-popping robots of doom…and these are just the tame ones mashed up in the blender of fake news bots, climate change hoaxes, human-dinosaur cohabitation, and more.
