The Ruins of California

Journalist Martha Sherrill started writing a memoir of her father, and what it was like for her growing up in California in the '70s. But when she learned something about her father's life that put everything into a wholly different perspective, she realized she was only going to be able to tell the story in fiction. So Sherrill's novel, based on her story, is called The Ruins of California. It's the story of a girl whose divorced parents shuttle her between L.A. and San Francisco, and between very different ethnic and socioeconomic milieus.
