GS Reads: Next Book Is...Gold Fame Citrus

Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins

Ready for the next book? We are starting Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins this week! This is Claire Vaye Watkins' debut novel set in a future Los Angeles plagued by a drought and has been all but abandoned. It has received praise from The Washington Post, NPR, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, and more.

Drought has transfigured Southern California into a surreal, phantasmagoric landscapes. Most of the Southwest has been evacuated. Luz and Ray are holdouts, squatting in a starlet's abandoned mansion and subsisting on rationed cola and whatever they can loot, scavenge, and improvise, their love somehow blooming in this arid place. But when they cross paths with a mysterious child, the thirst for a better future begins.
Immensely moving, radically disquieting, and mind-blowingly original, Gold Fame Citrus explores the myths we believe about others and tell about ourselves, the double-edged power of our most cherished relationships, and the shape of hope in a precarious future that may be our own. 

Plan to finish the book by May 17 so that we can have a discussion :)

Happy reading!
