about

Thirsty is the history of Los Angeles and its fraught relationship with water. As a city on the make since the early twentieth century, Los Angeles'' resources fought hard to keep up with its unchecked growth. The city''s water chief William Mulholland built an aqueduct to grab water over 200 miles away in Owens Valley, but it wasn''t enough. Thirsty is the gripping tale of Los Angeles'' epic battles for water, the larger-than-life characters that shaped a city''s destiny, and the man-made tragedy that killed 400 and forever changed the way water would be harnessed and allocated.
Marc Weingarten is the author of Station to Station and The Gang that Wouldn''t Write Straight ; the co-editor of the anthologies Yes is the Answer and Here She Comes Now, and producer of the films God Bless Ozzy Osbourne and The Other One . He lives in Malibu.
