In February, The Times launched Reading Los Angeles, an open invitation for readers to join me each month in reading books that can inform and broaden our thinking.

Each month, we will select a book; journalists and staff from the Times will moderate a discussion about the book, and, on occasion, we'll suggest other ways to explore the topic ranging from dining to arts and culture.

I hope you enjoy the reading as much as I do.

This Month's Book

L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food

Roy Choi

Anthony Bourdain/Ecco, $30

Los Angeles: A patchwork megalopolis defined by its unlikely cultural collisions; the city that raised and shaped Roy Choi, the boundary-breaking chef who decided to leave behind fine dining to feed the city he loved—and, with the creation of the Korean taco, reinvented street food along the way.

Purchase a copy of Roy Choi's book at the Los Angeles Times Store.
