Reading Alone At Bars

From Raymond Chandler’s hard-drinking detectives to Joan Didion’s ennui-soaked bacchanalia, the Los Angeles literary scene has long been mixed in the same highball glass with its tiki joints and Hollywood dives. Novelist Catie Disabato spends hours on her favorite solitary pastime, reading alone in bars. In this series, she crawls through LA’s bar scene with a book in her purse, exploring the resonances between the best reading and the most delicious libations.
