      I too found my way to Eve Babitz through Joan Didion. Eve’s Black Swan was the LA I knew (or wished I did).

      Jia Tolentino reminded me of Eve, in a modern (less socialite party girl) way. The sentences, the analysis, the verve of how they write.

      So many great females of the written world, and in such varying forms , lost to the last few weeks. Sheesh.
