Here is a piece that was published for the sunday edition of the LA Times Book Review last weekend... It was a for a book entitled "How the Dead Dream". About a man set out to get all the money he can in life, but strangely finds a passion for animals, esp. the endangered... So he sets out risking life and his profession to visit these animals, by breaking into zoos and getting as close to these animals as possible. A little excerpt from the book review.
"As the novel winds toward its conclusion, T 's limits become apparent. He screws up a vital friendship, insults a key business partner, watches a loved one slip away and is unable even to protect his dog. Checking in on his latest development-in-progress, a resort of the coast of Brazil, he decides to visit an animal preserve- the only way to get there is a Conradian trip up a jungle river. Through it all he ponders, in one way or another, the ends of things. Extinction. Death."
The art director on the piece was Carol Kaufman, who was great working with. It was also really cool to get published in the book review with my friend Nathan Huang, who just revised his website. Awesome.
On another note.. LA has been really cold lately.
