Eighteen weeks on the Los Angeles Times bestseller list
"Lipchitz is a lament about the devaluation of serious literature and the way Hollywood’s entertainment culture is destructive, not only to Los Angeles city life but to world culture itself."
—Los Angeles Review of Books
Set in two iconic locales—Hollywood's legendary Chateau Marmont and Fresno's amazing Forestiere's Underground Garden—Waiting for Lipchitz at Chateau Marmont is a bold and colorful critique of the California Dream through the perspective of screenwriter who has gone from riches to rags. A kind of Hollywood version of Waiting for Godot, Janigian's Lipchitz is a stunningly original take on the absent protagonist and what is illuminated in the void.
