Please join Wendy C. Ortiz & Writ Large Press for the release of Hollywood Notebook.
HOLLYWOOD NOTEBOOK is a prose poem-ish memoir of fragments. Ortiz takes us through the streets of Los Angeles and the internal maps she's charting as she moves from her twenties to her thirties in a studio apartment in Hollywood. A cartography of love, loss, and transformation, Hollywood Notebook is a portrait of the author's psyche overlaid on a map of the city she makes her home.
