It might just be the fact that fall is approaching on the calendar, but there's something in the air that makes us want to hit the books this time of year. We rounded up some of the best new books about LA to populate your reading list, or to help you the next time you stop by one of the city's independent booksellers for a gift. All of these books were published sometime in 2014, so the ink on these pages is fresh. Read all about the city you love, in prose and poetry, from the perspective of a former local drug king and a Box Girl at The Standard, and more.
