Cofounded by former LA Weekly editor Joe Donnelly and current Los Angeles Times Arts and Entertainment editor Laurie Ochoa, Slake is a literary journal that sets a new template for the next generation of print publications-collectible, not disposable; destined for the bedside table instead of the recycling bin. It's a whole new way of looking at Los Angeles and the world. We Dropped a Bomb on You is a devastating compendium of essays, fiction, and photo essays from the first four issues of Slake. Featuring previously unpublished work by Aimee Bender, Mark Z. Danielewski, Dana Goodyear, Gregory Bojorquez, Jonathan Gold, Richard Lange, Iris Berry, and Jerry Stahl, this collection marks a return to storytelling with polished essay, memoir, fiction, poetry, and profile writing that is disappearing in a world of instant takes and unfiltered opinion.
