Lionel Menuhin Rolfe has been a working journalist since age 19 at newspapers including the Los Angeles Free Press, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle. He was ten-year editor of the B'nai Brith Messenger (the second oldest newspaper in Los Angeles) and an editor for Psychology Today, when the magazine was edited from the beach in a secluded community near San Diego. He is also the author of nine books, including the widely read Literary L.A. For more on the Menuhin family, his title include The Uncommon Friendship of Yaltah Menuhin and Willa Cather. At 70, he published The Misadventures of Ari Mendelsohn: A Mostly True Memoir of California Journalism. It is an effort to sum up the meaning of half a century of "professional" observation. Whatever answers he has, they are here. He is also anthologized in Unknown California, Classics and Contemporary Writing on California Culture, Society and Politics (Macmillan, 1985) and On Bohemia: The Code of the Self Exile (Transaction/Rutgers, 1990). He lives in Los Angeles. His articles are featured on the website www.boryanabooks.com and on the Huffington Post.
