The joint LARB/Los Angeles magazine feature coincides with the release this week of Nicholson's new novel The City Under the Skin. Nicholson invited Miller, a longtime friend, to join him on a walk to explore a series of urban ruins hidden in plain sight. They started at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and made their way to Joan Didion's former house. Anthony Miller wrote the print story about the journey, "Geoff Nicholson Maps the Territory." Michael Schmelling documented it via photograph. LARB's multimedia division, LARB AV, recorded the video edition, presented here.
