Summary
A graduate student in the history department at USC, Rick Nagano struggles to make rent on his apartment. When he lands a job as a research assistant for the elderly Mrs. W--, the heir to an oil fortune, he first sees it as a source of extra cash, but grows closer to the iconoclastic woman. Putting aside his half-finished dissertation Rick begins to transcribe her journals, which document an old Los Angeles not described in his history books. He accompanies Mrs. W-- to an event where he meets Fiona Morgan, who takes an interest in his studies. Drawn to Fiona, he agrees to help her with a project of questionable merit in the hopes he'll win her favor
