I confess—this isn’t really an indication of where publishing types fall in the pecking order in Los Angeles. It’s the West LA restaurant where Tina Dupuy of FishbowlLA and I met up so we could get to know each other before heading out to a book party during the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books weekend. I’ve got plenty of notes and pictures, which I’ll be sorting through later today. (You may be reading this as you switch on your computer Monday morning, but to me it’s actually Sunday night at the airport in Long Beach, waiting for the redeye back to the East Coast. I should have my bearings back by the early afternoon, and in the meantime you’ve got Emily and Andy to keep you company.)
