Mark Arax will talk about his new book, West of the West: Dreamers, Believers, Builders, and Killers in the Golden State, at the Book Passage bookstore in Marin on May 8. From the Book Passage announcement:
In the tradition of Joan Didion, Arax combines journalism, essay, and memoir to capture social upheaval as well as the sense of being rooted in a community. Piece by piece, the stories become a whole, a panorama of California and America in a new century
