Can you recommend good books about Los Angeles? Non-fiction preferred but fiction as well.

Have been fascinated with this city when visiting on business. I would think there would be some good books about the city out there. On the non-fiction side I would love to see a book that breaks down the cultural history of the neighborhoods and emphasizes the quirky, unusual and outrageous. Pictures would be great as well, though not necessary. On the fiction side anything that is able to give me that same sense of explaining the city's history in the context of narrative.
