NORTH OF MULHOLLAND is a distillation of experiences, opinions, and stories springing from Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, but expanding into a world view of where we have been, where we are, and where we may be headed.
Mr. Cooper’s wide-ranging travels; his fascination with Churchill, antique typewriters, and books; and his critical eye for our surroundings, have spawned more than fifty fascinating essays for the San Fernando Valley Business Journal.
He takes on everything from strip malls to Countrywide Home Loans; from the Los Angeles Times to technology; and from Los Angeles’ City Council to Nebraska’s legislature. He ruminates on fire and water; long-gone businesses; living up the street from Michael Jackson’s family compound; and the elephant at the Los Angeles Zoo.
For those who live or work in the San Fernando Valley, this is a book for you. For those don’t live in the San Fernando Valley, this is also a book for you
