David L. Ulin is the guest. He is the book critic for the Los Angeles Times, a Guggenheim fellow, and the author of SidewalkingComing to Terms with Los Angeles, due out from the University of California Press in October. You can pre-order it now.

I've been reading David for years in the LA Times and had the pleasure of meeting him this past winter during a residency in Palm Desert. His new book deals with a subject we have in common: the city of Los Angeles, a city notoriously difficult to wrap one's head around. David, though, does it masterfully, shining a light on LA's strange beauty, little idiosyncrasies, and big contradictions.

In the monologue, I talk about my complete lack of imagination and tendency toward very thinly veiled autobiographical work, and I ponder my decision to read a sex scene in front of people at a local bookstore.
