LA Star Map: Graveyard Edition


Readers who visit Paris or London in the hopes of paying their respects to departed authors can do so in one fell swoop, with graves concentrated in a single, central location; visitors to LA, however, will have to do some schlepping. The LA Times offers a handy guide to the graves of the rich and famous (in our hearts if not our history), including Bukowski, Bradbury, and L. Frank Baum. As a whole, the authors’ resting places are remarkably unassuming; simple memorials belie the literary giants buried in and around the City of Angels.
