    About The Book

    Classic and contemporary writing on California culture, society, history, and politics.

    California: Wallace Stegner calls it “America, only more so.” Moguls and migrant workers; primal natural beauty and the artificial glitz of neon-lit cities; high-tech prosperity and grinding poverty; religious fervor and insistence on personal freedom; the triumph of the new frontiers and the weariness of a final destination; madness; exotic; and heartbreak. There is not one California; there are many.

    As Unknown California demonstrates, the conflict, divergence, and juxtaposition of California’s cultures have given birth to writing of resonant richness — some of the best America has known. Unknown California offers Mark Twain “roughing it” in San Francisco, Norman Mailer exposing the corruption at the heart of the film industry, and John Steinbeck reporting on the miseries of the migrant camps.

    Thomas Pynchon measures the aftershocks of the Watts riots, Evelyn Waugh explores Hollywood’s bizarre burial practices, and Henry Miller evokes the majesty of Big Sur. Equally revealing are voices of writers yet to be discovered. As they express the dreams and fury of the Latino community and describe life in Silicon Valley and Harvey Milk’s San Francisco, they add the shadows and highlights that mark California’s ever-changing landscape.

    In Unknown California, history and commentary, parody and polemic come together. In letters from a woman describing life in the mining camps in 1852, in a disturbingly familiar portrait of turn-of-the-century Chinatown, in an account of a summer spent in that quintessentially Californian phenomenon called the Magic Kingdom, witnesses from North, South, East, and West testify to a remarkable place. Unknown California is a feast of good writing and a voyage of discovery to a state and state of mind that are as all-encompassing and mysterious as America itself.
