9780871408419: The Last Days of California: A Novel
Críticas:

"Hilarious and heartbreaking, dark and beautiful, a novel written by one of the most observant and mordant writers alive...This book is terrific." -- Elizabeth McCracken, author of An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination and The Giant's House "The Last Days of California is a beautiful examination of youth and family and what it means to be alive (and to fear dying) in contemporary America...every scene...tremble[s] with significance... Rarely, if ever, have we seen young American womanhood painted in such a raw and honest and heartbreaking way." -- William Boyle "The Last Days of California is the Sense and Sensibility of pre-Apocalypse America, and Jess and Elise may be my new favorite literary sisters: different as night and day, on a road trip to the Rapture with their Evangelical parents, they find they have nothing to lose but each other. Mary Miller is a ventriloquist of adolescent angst and a nervy surveyor of American culture." -- Alexis Smith, author of Glaciers "An affecting coming-of-age story from an inspired new voice." -- Elliott Holt, author of You are One of Them "A literary snapshot of our times that portrays the affirmation and doubt we often find in family and faith." -- Wiley Cash, New York Times best-selling author of This Dark Road to Mercy and A Land More Kind Than Home "Miller portrays her characters...with an unwavering intensity... Miller's prose bestows a magnetic beauty on gas-station bathroom stops, Waffle House lunches, and the cast of overfed, overstimulated travelers the Metcalfs encounter along the interstates. ...A plangent portrait of American adolescence... [She delivers] raw the heartbreaking futility of the Metcalfs' small triumphs, private embarrassments, and poor decisions with such hilarious precision that you become completely involved in their struggles-and, ultimately, in awe of their abiding hope." -- Catherine Straut "Miller's depiction of a squabbling, love-you-one-minute, hate-you-the-next family dynamic is spot-on, hilarious, and ultra-relatable... Sometimes a road-trip novel, particularly one as compulsively devourable as The Last Days of California, is just what you need to get that elusively giddy, hopeful feeling back." -- Hannah Hickok

Críticas:

"[A] terrific first novel... Why worry about labeling a book this good? Just read it." The New York Times Book Review "A plangent portrait of American adolescence... [Miller delivers] raw the heartbreaking futility of the Metcalfs' small triumphs, private embarrassments, and poor decisions with such hilarious precision that you become completely involved in their struggles - and, ultimately, in awe of their abiding hope." Elle
