David Kramer, co-owner of Family, bills it as "a curated bookstore." This means that the emphasis, at least where the book selection is concerned, is on quality over quantity. This one-of-a-kind shop is a hipster's dream on prime Fairfax real estate. The bookstore's back wall is papered with a blown-up black-and-white photo of a gun-toting Eastern European Jewish vigilante group formed to guard against pogroms. Aside from a well-pruned book inventory, Family also offers up hard-to-find magazines, indie films and videos, and an ample music section.
Family is a hot spot in LA for indie and cult movie showings, author readings, and exhibits from underground zines.
