Calla is struggling to make a living as a writer in post-Great Recession New York. Seeking the paradoxical equilibrium between freedom and security, she impulsively leaves for Los Angeles—and finds herself in a swirling array of distractions, pleasures, connections, and breakdowns. Natasha Young’s quick-witted, kaleidoscopic debut novel will take you to the heart of despair in Brooklyn and leave you blissfully disassociated in the mythical hills of Los Angeles.
