How to Get into the Twin Palms

How to Get into the Twin Palms - Karolina Waclawiak A wacky, wild book about a young woman with some serious self-esteem issues who has an affair with a wildly inappropriate Russian man. Very interesting portrait of a person caught between two cultures--the old world and the new--who can't seem to find her place in either. Also interesting was the portrait of a Los Angeles that few outside the Eastern European immigrant community know, and the heroine's very ambiguous feelings about the City of Angels.
