More Bad Book News: Dutton's To Close

LA Observed reported early this morning the closure of Dutton's Brentwood Books, a bright fixture of the LA literary community, now its latest casualty.

Brentwood Dutton's was first threatened about a year ago, when the property changed hands and the new landlord sought to redevelop it. The bookstore's future careened like a truck about to jackknife. Salvation came, and went. Owner Doug Dutton hasn't ruled out a return, but the outlook isn't good:
We have been asked if the store will reopen in the proposed new development, or at another site in the area. At present, any plans to reopen or relocate will have to await a real offer in a real situation, combined with a sober assessment of the realities of the book world. That said, we have not said “no” to any future possibility.
