Set in Los Angeles, Harris portrays LA as a microcosm of contemporary society. Mark Harris has published essays, non-fiction books and five award winning children’s books. Mark is best known as a documentary film maker. He has won multiple Academy Awards for his documentary films, a Writers’ Guild Award, and other awards and acclaim. New to Book Talk?
