About this title
The year is 2008, the place California. Vic Mahler, famous for having inspired cult followers in the seventies, serves time on death row, now facing a countdown of ten days. For years, his daughter, Lana, has been in hiding. Meanwhile, her friend Rose, a lawyer, is determined to bring the two together.
When Rose succeeds in tracking down Lana at a California health spa, the two friends must negotiate land mines of memory in order to find their future. In sharp episodes infused with pathos and wit, Edie Meidav brings her acclaimed insight and poetry to friendship, parenthood, dystopia, and the legacy of the seventies.
Lola, California speaks to our contemporary crisis of faith, asking: can we survive too much choice?
Dear Amazonians,I reached into everything I knew about California and friendship and tried to bring it forth in this book. Some have noted that this book's Vic is a distant cousin to Emile (of CRAWL SPACE, my second novel). And yet I felt I was breaking some new ground in the writing of this. See what you think, and sending you happy thoughts for your summer reading.All best,Edie
