I can't believe it took me 20 years to read this book and the biggest takeaway I've got is You really are Susan Sontag's son aren't you? This was an interesting read But it was also gratuitously simplistic and polemicalRieff's by now familiar point is that white people in Southern California at the end of the 20th century remained willfully ignorant about their enormous reliance on immigrant labor and on the ongoing demographic change of Los Angeles into a plurality immigrant city To get there he starts off by criticizing his New York friends for being unable to speak of LA without deriding and stereotyping the city Then he spends half the book hanging out with his very upper middle class white Los Angeles friends and ends up drawing his own derisive stereotypes about the city not the least of which is the laughable idea that his moneyed pampered privileged Westside friends somehow represent the average white Los Angeles resident He criticizes them for not being able to accept Latino Angelenos especially their own maids and gardeners as fellow human beings Yet in doing so he makes it seem pretty clear that he himself doesn't know many people of lesser means than these whom he's criticizing He eventually makes it to the Eastside to basically see how the other half lives But for all the great import he gives as did many 1990s reviewers to his discovery of demographic change in LA it's amazing to note that he never seems to notice the ethnic diversity in his NYC hometown He has to travel 3000 miles to discover some rich white people don't take poor Latinos seriously Not for nothing but he could have simply left the Upper West Side and crossed the 59th Street Bridge into ueens or 155th Street into Washington Heights to learn the same thingUPDATE So now that I've made it all the way to the end I have three brief observations1 Reiff repeats himself so many times in the final 150 pages there's probably only about 50 pages of real content there 2 It's VERY hard to swallow that after 300 pages of scathingly criticizing the entirety of white Los Angeles at the very end he claims his point to be that we must all love each other3 What a schmuck I found the historical material most interesting Such matters as Los Angeles diocesan support for the clericalist Cristero revolt in Mexico in the 1930s are rarely heard of And uite well written in style
