Northern California Writers and Their Work

In this book Jonah Raskin examines thirty northern California writers, fifteen of them women, and their work, in the context of the region in which they live and the literary community there—one that has been ignored or denied by the mainstream literary establishment (read New York).

Most of the writers are contemporary—both literary celebrities like Alice Walker, Gary Snyder, Amy Tan, Anne Lamott and Isabel Allende, and more obscure but also great writers like Greg Sarris, Gina Berriault, Jim Dodge and Freeman House—but Raskin starts with Jack London, providing a historical perspective.
