The highly acclaimed, instant New York Times bestseller that "shows the moment-by-moment reality of a painful possible future, the price we may have to pay for our passionate devotion to all of the wrong things." --Sarah Stone, San Francisco Chronicle The world Cal and Frida have always known is gone, and they've left the crumbling city of Los Angeles far behind them. They now live in a shack in the wilderness, working side-by-side to make their days tolerable in the face of hardship and isolation. Mourning a past they can't reclaim, they seek solace in each other. But the tentative existence they've built for themselves is thrown into doubt when Frida finds out she's pregnant. Terrified of the unknown and unsure of their ability to raise a child alone, Cal and Frida set out for the nearest settlement, a guarded and paranoid community with dark secrets. These people can offer them security, but Cal and Frida soon realize this community poses dangers of its own. In this unfamiliar world, where everything and everyone can be perceived as a threat, the couple must quickly decide whom to trust. A gripping and provocative debut novel by a stunning new talent, California imagines a frighteningly realistic near future, in which clashes between mankind's dark nature and deep-seated resilience force us to question how far we will go to protect the ones we love.

California Dreamin A 19 year Old Indian Sikh s Memoir Journey to California Romance Trials Tribulations
|Author||: Rajinder S. Khokhar|
California Dreaming is about my journey to America for higher studies in 1961 and my difficult first 2 years. On the way I had a wonderful shipboard romance with Kavita, a tall Indian woman. We parted in Italy and we were heartbroken. Before we could meet in America she had to rush back to India because Grandmother had a heart attack. Later she visited with her mother. The highlight was her trying on a bikini. What a beautiful sight--voluptuous breasts, curvy body, long legs! It was huge turn-on and later we enjoyed passionate lovemaking. Love of my life could not stay and had to return to India. I wondered if I would see her again. College in Indiana was great, but I could not handle snow and California was calling! Driving there in an old car was adventurous. Discrimination was high against a turbaned Sikh. No decent jobs were available to me. Finally I got a job at a packinghouse. It was hard keeping my head above water while studying at Fresno State. Where is Kavita? Are we destined to be together?
