The King of Lighting Fixtures

Stories

The University of Arizona Press

Wanderers and writers, gangbangers and lawyers, dreamers and devils. The King of Lighting Fixtures paints an idiosyncratic but honest portrait of Los Angeles, depicting how the city both entrances and confounds. Each story serves as a reflection of Daniel A. Olivas’s grand City of Angels, a “magical metropolis where dreams come true.” These are literary sketches of a Los Angeles that will surprise, connect, and disrupt readers wherever they may live.

RELATED TOPICS: Fiction, Latino/a Studies, Literature

Daniel A. Olivas is the author of seven books, including The Book of Want: A Novel and Things We Do Not Talk About: Exploring Latino/a Literature through Essays and Interviews. A second-generation Angeleno, he makes his home in Los Angeles with his wife.
