"Thomason paints as a native, capturing Los Angeles at the level of its streets…. this is Los Angeles without its history of forgetting, no longer rootless, placeless, but instead, through Thomason’s transforming imagination, the embodiment of place.”
― David L. Ulin, book critic, Los Angeles Times
