Lili Anolik is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Her work has also appeared in Harper's, Esquire, and The Believer. She is the author of Hollywood's Eve and lives in New York City with her husband and two small sons.
Anolik shares deep cuts from Babitz's writing and influence over the major players of the era... Come for the LA intrigue; stay for the surprising moral of the story. --Kirkus Reviews We love Eve Babitz because she was insatiable, and because she makes us feel insatiable in return. I practically snorted this book, stayed up all night with it. But Lili Anolik also brings us through the comedown, the previously unseen conclusions -- she decodes, ruptures, and ultimately intensifies Eve's singular irresistible glitz. --Jia Tolentino If there is a fresher, more vibrant voice than Lili Anolik's out there, I don't know of it. She is a true original and therefore she is the perfect biographer of another true original, Eve Babitz, the 'it' girl of the sun-baked noir of Hollywood in the 60s and 70s. --Graydon Carter In Hollywood's Eve, an extraordinarily felicitous meeting of subject and biographer, Lili Anolik truly gets Eve Babitz: her canny deadpan wit, her refreshingly guilt-free acceptance of appetite in all its forms, her profound and wise instinctiveness about people, and her delectable prose conjurings of L.A.'s unsung treasures and pleasures. Let other writers worship at the banal altar of L.A. Thanatos; Anolik's Eve is the fearless beating heart of L.A. Eros, and her inimitable voice comes alive in Anolik's own lovingly warm and penetrating celebration of Babitz's magnificent beauty, wildness and art. --Elizabeth Frank, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Cheat and Charmer Lili Anolik's love letter to Eve Babitz is as probing and intelligent as it is outrageously fun, swirling with secrets and gossip, celebrity and art, feminism and literature and tragedy and sex and sex and sex. A glorious trip through the looking glass of a golden-age L.A., Hollywood's Eve makes the case for Babitz as chronicler and muse of an era even as it paints an unsparing picture of its lost illusions. --Joe Hagan, author of Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine There's no better way to look at Hollywood in that magic decade, the 1970s, than through Eve Babitz's eyes. Eve knew everyone, slept with everyone, used, amused, and abused everyone. And then there's Eve herself: a cult figure turned into a legend in Anolik's electrifying book. This is a portrait as mysterious, maddening-and seductive-as its subject. --Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls
