The original edition of "La Bizarro" was published in 1997 by St. Martin's and spent 18 weeks on the "LA Times" bestseller list, sold nearly 40,000 copies lifetime, and has earned an avid cult following that has resulted in media articles on the 10th anniversary of the book as a cultural phenomenon. This all new, full color edition of the book is completely revised and expanded to include 60% new entries. It is completely redesigned, better, and more bizarre than ever! Most information available to people traveling to or living in L.A. is geared to mainstream tastes and the peanut-munching crowds. Finally, here's a guide for those who view the world though a psychedelic lens. Inside you'll find a guide to eateries, sex shops, curious tourist attractions, nude beaches, dive bars, off-the-beaten-path museums, murder sites, cemeteries, and more (porn star karaoke, scary puppet shows...).
