520    "The first time Natalie Singer learns about California, 
       she's nine, tucked between library stacks, a Canadian 
       blizzard outside. In a book called All About California, 
       she reads of mythological griffins, rupturing earthquakes,
       furnace deserts, and Hollywood stars, and an imprinting 
       takes place. Could California be an answer to her dull 
       existence in the nowhere of the North and the family 
       secrets seeping out from behind closed doors? The fantasy 
       of California blooms out of Singer's father's collection 
       of Beach Boys records, her pretty mother's perfect red 
       nails, the boys and men she tries hungrily to connect with,
       and the haunting memory of being interrogated on a 
       courtroom witness stand. At sixteen, she finally goes west
       to the place of her obsessions to find out whether you can
       cure longing with landscape alone. Reckoning with the 
       power that family and cultural myths hold over us, 
       California Calling is a universal coming-of-age story and 
       one woman's lyrical, achingly honest search for a state of
       belonging."--Provided by publisher.
