Description
The 1992 Los Angeles Rodney King Riots were the most destructive riots in the United States history. To date, few literary novels have broached the subject matter head-on.

This Angelic Land, by Aris Janigian tells the story of Adam Derderian, a hip 27-year-old bar owner during his six-day journey through the surreal heart of Los Angeles and one of the city's darkest episodes.

Seeming to carry scant memory of Lebanon's civil war, from which Derderian had fled as a child, the landscape of the riots now finds him revisiting the world he thought he escaped.

Derderian engages with Armenian gangsters, members of the Nation of Islam, a Hancock Park playboy, and a Kurdish scenic artist, as he watches his adopted city ransacked and set ablaze.
