How to write a great review. The review must be at least 50 characters long.
The title should be at least 4 characters long. This is literature here. I have no passion for it. Since , Ingala has filled record crates with an enviable collection that consists primarily of rock, blues and jazz, three genres he knows intimately and plays at home on his guitar. Eight years ago, business was so bad that I needed something to bring in extra money. I tried selling cards and incense. Born in Montebello, California in , Ingala grew up in La Mirada, the grandson of Italian immigrants, the son of two loving, albeit strict parents, and the brother of two sisters.
After high school, he worked sparingly and played in numerous bands with the hope of landing a record deal.
No matter what Ingala pursued, books remained the one constant, his undying love. He read religiously and supported himself by working in bookstore and libraries. For several years, he also edited and published his own literary journal, Insomnia. Until he opened Angel City, however, he only worked long enough to fund his next project.
Borders, which was also on the Promenade, closed in Alias Books in West L. In , Sideshow Books, which was just around the corner from Alias, relocated to a larger space in Faircrest Heights. Unlike many of the stores above, Angel City has had the great fortune of retaining the same rent since it opened. Angel City, which is to say Ingala, is still in debt. Book Monster, which began as a chain of used bookstores in Korea, opened on the Promenade in Perhaps more concerning, Amazon opened a bookstore at Century City and plans to open another in the Pacific Palisades.
Even in their most grotesque, capitalist iterations, bookstores house our attempts to communicate the deepest and most ineffable aspects of our humanity. At an independent bookstore, the possibility for a connection outside of the page, with the person behind the desk, will always feel far greater.
For now, Angel City and Ingala represent the last hope for that book-bound intimacy on the Westside. Search for: Search. Photo by Max Bell.
