The Ghetto Swinger reviewed in BLVD

“Why should you read this book? It not only gives a new perspective on World War Two, but provides a closer look at the the jazz scene of the twentieth century as well. Schumann grasps your interest and lets you witness his beautiful, humorous and shocking experiences from up close.”

LA Weekly: The Dingbat is an endangered species

With our Frank Gehry buildings and iconic downtown landmarks, Angelenos know great architecture when they see it. Or at least great architecture in the sense of what’s conventionally accepted as pleasing to the eye. Few people would argue the magnificence of Union Station or the Walt Disney Concert Hall — these are the buildings tourists love to take selfies in front of and that professors nerd out over.
