about

This Angelic Land is the story of Adam Derderian, a hip, twenty-seven year old bar owner, and his six-day journey through the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Seeming to carry scant memory of Lebanon’s civil war, from which Derderian had fled while still a boy, the landscape of the riots now finds him revisiting the world he thought he had 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. The first novel length work of literary fiction ever to confront the subject matter of the 1992 Los Angeles riots head-on, critic D.J. Waldie has called This Angelic Land "Today's necessary book."
