In nine short stories, characters from around Los Angeles go through inspiring adventures of triumph and heartache in the sprawling, eclectic foodscape of the iconic city.
The short stories in this collection are unique in that they exhibit not only the foodscape of Los Angeles, but they also provide insight into the millions of lives going about their business in the wide-reaching locale. Neighborhoods, street corners, restaurants, and other geographical institutions, The Long Takeout is a love letter to the throbbing pulse of many a kid, teen and adult that has called the city of angels some kind of home. The Long Takeout intends to be a literary food court of showing people what's necessary on a trip to self-discovery.
