‘Turn Off the Sunshine’ by Timothy Turner


A copy of Timothy G. Turner’s “Turn Off the Sunshine” has been listed on EBay. Turner, you may recall, was the Times columnist who worked with artist Charles Owens on Rediscovering Los Angeles. Bidding on this copy of the book – which has a broken spine – is (get ready) $950. No, I’m not kidding. With no dust jacket and a broken spine.

But don’t despair. You can find it at Archive.org – free.
