Rayner had this statement: “It’s a sad indicator of where things stand in the book world that my column ‘Paperback Writers’ was dropped by the Los Angeles Times … But I’m delighted and thrilled that it will now be carried by the Los Angeles Review of Books, a vibrant new publication which has already featured so many great writers and is set on refreshing and expanding LA’s literary landscape.”
His column will continue to focus on “reissues, new titles, classics—especially works that don’t otherwise get the attention they deserve.” Rayner has written five novels and four nonfiction titles, including Los Angeles Without A Map and A Bright And Guilty Place.
