Eve Babitz is a little like Madame de Sevigne, that inveterate letter-writer of Louis XIV's time, transposed to the Chateau Marmont in the late g, chatting, dressing, loving and crying in Hollywood, that latter-day Versailles. -Mollie Gregory, . As the cynosure of the counterculture, Eve Babitz knew everybody worth knowing; slept with everybody worth sleeping with and better still, made herself felt in every encounter.

Eve's Hollywood book. This is how Eve Babitz found herself going to Hollywood High, surrounded by some of the most beautiful teenagers on the planet

Eve's Hollywood book. Journalist, party girl, bookworm, artist, muse: by the time she’d. This is how Eve Babitz found herself going to Hollywood High, surrounded by some of the most beautiful teenagers on the planet. She was far from ugly, but she never made the top cut of those sirens who were not only breathtaking, but already gliding through life with self-assurance and poise. In the depression, when most of them came here, people with brains went to New York and people with faces came West.

Eve’s Hollywood is an album of vivid snapshots of Southern California’s haute bohemians, of outrageously beautiful . Journalist, party girl, bookworm, artist, muse: by the time she’d hit thirty, Eve Babitz had played all of these roles.

And though Babitz’s prose might appear careening, she’s in control as she takes us on a ride through an LA of perpetual delight, from a joint serving the perfect taquito, to the corner of La Brea and Sunset where we make eye contact with a roller-skating hooker, to the Watts Towers.

Eve Babitz (born May 13, 1943) is an American artist and author best known for her fictive memoirs and her relationship to the cultural milieu of Los Angeles. Babitz was born in Hollywood, California, the daughter of Mae, an artist, and Sol Babitz, a classical violinist on contract with 20th Century Fox. Her father was of Russian Jewish descent and her mother had Cajun (French) ancestry. Babitz's parents were friends with the composer Igor Stravinsky, who was her godfather.

Eve Babitz was the ultimate factory girl, a pure product of L. he goddaughter of Igor Stravinsky and a graduate of Hollywood High, Babitz posed in 1963, at age twenty, playing chess with the French artist Marcel Duchamp. She was naked; he was not. The photograph, cheesecake with a Dadaist twist, made her an instant icon of art and sex. Babitz spent the rest of the decade rocking and rolling on the Sunset Strip, honing her notoriety. There were the album covers she designed: for Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds, to name but a few.

EVE’S HOLLYWOOD By Eve Babitz 296 pages. Babitz was born in 1943. I’m in no position to argue. Her father was a gifted studio musician for 20th Century Fox; her mother was an artist; her godfather was Igor Stravinsky. The family’s house was a literary and artistic salon.

You’d hate Eve Babitz if she wasn’t so damn charming Eve was crazy for it, too. She used it as a blurb on her first book, Eve’s Hollywood

You’d hate Eve Babitz if she wasn’t so damn charming. Like candy, she’s irresistible. In Eve’s Hollywood and Slow Days, Babitz is a wonderful chronicler of Los Angeles in the ’50s through the ’70s, the ultimate insider. She grew up in Hollywood and yet was immersed in a rich cultural and intellectual collection of artists. Eve was crazy for it, too. She used it as a blurb on her first book, Eve’s Hollywood. Earl was calling her a tramp, basically-an old-fashioned word, an old-fashioned concept-but in the classiest possible way. And Eve ate it up.

I can't remember where I got this book. It was sometime in the late 70's or early 80's. I was just out of high school and completely bewitched by this book. I read it many, many times and then sadly lost it. Years later ,with the wonders of technology, I was able to get another copy and copies of all Ms.Babitz's books. She is a lyrical, iconoclastic and brilliant writer. Her writing holds up. She should be more popular than she is. Buy anything by her- you won't be sorry. I consider finding her one of the highlights of my active reading life.

Stumbled across this book by accident in a southern California library and opened it only reluctantly. But from page one, I was hooked, hooked, hooked. This gal can write books like tornadoes can tear up neighborhoods. Reading her (slightly fictionalized account) of growing up in LA was so thoroughly engrossing, I've tracked down and bought a (used) copy so I can re-read it from time to time - just to enjoy the verbal riffs she pulls off so (seemingly) effortlessly.
If you liked Mary Karr's The Liar's Club, you'll LOVE this one. Reading it a second and third time is like returning to your favorite restaurant and being served the best meal in the world - over and over again. Deeply, richly, and very, very satisfying.
Check it out. It's truly timeless. Truly.
