Book Description Condition: New. Poignant, ambitious, and tremendously fun, Crossing Californiais the fiction discovery of the season-a novel about two generations of family and friendship in Chicago from November 1979 through January 1981. In 1979 California Avenue, in Chicago's West Rogers Park neighborhood, separates the upper-middle-class Jewish families from the mostly middle-class Jewish residents on the east of the divide. This by turns funny and heartbreaking first novel tells the story of three families and their teenage children living on either side of California, following their loves, heartaches, and friendships during a memorable moment of American history. Langer's captivating portraits, his uncanny and extraordinarily vivid re-creation of a not-so-past time and place, and his pitch-perfect dialogue all make Crossing California certain to evoke memories and longing in its readers-as well as laughter and anxiety. Whether viewed as an American Graffitifor the seventies, The Jewish Corrections, a Chicagoan Manhattan, or early Philip Roth for a later generation, Crossing Californiais an unforgettable, and thoroughly enjoyable, contribution to contemporary fiction.
