Piercing the Darkness: Undercover with Vampires in America Today by Katherine Ramsland
HarperPrisim, October 1998, p121
”The City of Angels was a provocative setting in many ways for this international conference. Most people know it for Disneyland, Hollywood, the Simpson and Menendez trials, violent gangs, plastic surgeons behind every bush, and the highest per capita number of manifestations of deception and phoniness in the country. In fact, it’s a far more complex place. In his novel, Sole Survivor, Newport Beach resident Dean Koontz describes it thus: “The most glamorous, tackiest, most elegant, seediest, most clever, dumbest, most beautiful, ugliest, forward-looking, retro-thinking, altruistic, self-absorbed, deal-savvy, politically ignorant, artistic-minded, criminal-loving, meaning-obsessed, money-grubbing, laid-back, frantic city on the planet.”
