"Dancing on the Spider's Web is a funny, joyful story of young love lost and found again in the tumultuous time of Haight Ashbury. You'll adore Sasha Paulsen's quirky band of misfits, especially Sarah, who fears love even as she chases it. A touching debut novel that takes you back to a by gone era when seeking mattered more than finding."
SANDRA DALLAS, New York Times bestselling author of True Sisters

"Sasha Paulsen has set her debut novel in San Francisco, Napa and Berkeley in the pivotal '70s. She deftly captures both the spirit of those times and the essence of a cast of zany, appealing characters. Highly recommended."
JAMES CONAWAY, author of Napa: an American Eden and Nose

There she meets the free-spirited Gabriel, and together they embark on a series of whirlwind adventures that take them out of the city, deeper into the country, and face to face with buried emotions, family discord, and long-sought dreams.

"[Sasha Paulsen's] characters are so alive in their complexity and her prose is so vivid that I began to believe Sarah, Gabriel, and Rory must be living just down the street. A sparkling and utterly engrossing debut."
