9780143112976: The Golden Road: Notes on My Gentrification

The true story of a remarkable young woman's struggle to find a home in the world
Caille Millner is a rising star on the literary scene. A graduate of Harvard University, she was first published at age sixteen and was recently named one of Columbia Journalism Review's Ten Young Writers on the Rise. The Golden Road is Millner's clear-eyed and transfixing memoir. From her childhood in a Latino neighborhood in San Jose, California, and coming of age in a more affluent yet quietly hostile Silicon Valley suburb to a succession of imagined promised lands-Harvard, London, post-apartheid South Africa, New York City-this is the story of Millner's search for a place where she can define herself on her own terms and live a life that matters.
