In this collection you'll encounter starry-eyed sinners, street corner revolutionaries, Hollywood hustlers, over-heated politicians, rightwing assholes, a ghost or two, cavorting cops, architects with issues, and a little old lady with a popgun--all out to make their mark in the city of dreams and despair.
