William Loving reads from “City of Angles” with Ivy Pochoda
October 7, 2020 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
City of Angles is a darkly humorous story of hope, loss, family, and most of all, community, set in modern-day Los Angeles. In this re-imagining of the epic poem The Aeneid of Virgil, Homer V. Innes loses everything in a devastating series of calamities and winds up homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. Desperate to put his life back together and find his runaway son, Innes embarks on an epic journey across a Los Angeles that is both familiar and foreign. In the course of his misadventures, he encounters a diverse and eccentric cast of urban characters, from the homeless on Skid Row, to teenage runaways, drag queens, porn stars, and hookers, all of whom contribute to his ultimate epiphany as he seeks his place in the world.
