CURBSIDE L.A. by Cecilia Rasmussen (Los Angeles Times: $16.95, 205 pp., paperback original). This pleasantly offbeat guide--a compilation of columns Rasmussen wrote for The Times--goes beyond the usual litany of celebrity graves and film studios to cover some of the region's more outre attractions: WPA projects, pet cemeteries and a library in Glendale with the world's largest collection of "feline-related material." Residents and tourists will enjoy the lists of significant sites in Southern Californian ethnic history.
