Journeying through LA's rock and literary worlds, it is also an homage to the city, tracking its internal and external changing landscape and its cultural shape shifting. Virtual Velocity explores the complicated and often mystifying intersection between fame and art.Virtual Velocity is the story of the curious creation of pop phenomena, Jake Jenkins, America's most renowned and successful literary novelist.
