Dai flussi migratori al cambiamento climatico, la California è sempre stata uno degli epicentri delle principali questioni legate al nostro tempo. Tra le voci che in questo numero sono state chiamate da John Freeman a dar vita a un mosaico letterario che restituisse la bellezza e la complessità di questa terra: William T. Vollmann, Tommy Orange, Rachel Kushner, Jennifer Egan, Rabih Alameddine, Anthony Marra, Geoff Dyer, Natalie Diaz, Lauren Markham, Reyna Grande, Frank Bidart, Robin Coste Lewis, D.A. Powell, Juan Felipe Herrera, Manuel Muñoz, Javier Zamora, Héctor Tobar, Oscar Villalon, e Elaine Castillo. Le forme che compongono il mosaico spaziano come sempre dal racconto al saggio, dall'articolo di giornale alla poesia.

California, as we know, is not exactly that gleaming golden that it once was. What's so appealing about this book of new California writing is the ease with which it captures the diverse experience of living here in the still accurate Carey McWilliams coined "island on the land."

When I won this book I didn't know there were others like this. I liked this book. It is a collection of short stories and poems talking about California. I wish there were more stories in this book.
Excellent collection of essays, stories and poetry from CA authors. One of the few journals I’ve read cover to cover. Pick this one up, then seek out some of its authors.
This book was okay. Some of the writers I enjoyed, while others I did not enjoy. I thouhgt that some of the essays were too long, but for the most part found the book to be somewhat enjoyable.
Hadn’t heard of this publication before. Pretty decent. I might subscribe.
A must read if you love California. The selections are truly representative of our old and modern culture.
