Gold Fame CitrusBook - 2015
"Unrelenting drought has transfigured Southern California into a surreal, phantasmagoric landscape...In Los Angeles Laurel Canyon, two young Mojavs, Luz, once a poster child for the Bureau of Conservation and its enemies, and Ray, a veteran of the forever war turned surfer, squat in a starlet's abandoned mansion. Holdouts, they subsist on rationed cola and whatever they can loot, scavenge, and improvise. The couple's fragile love somehow blooms in this arid place, and for the moment, it seems enough. But when they cross paths with a mysterious child, the thirst for a better future begins. They head east, a route strewn with danger: sinkholes and patrolling authorities, bandits and the brutal, omnipresent sun"-- Provided by publisher.
