The California of Where You Live might have sun, surf, and sand, but it's more densely populated with cracking marriages, accidental pregnancies, and shitty jobs. Andrew Roe's Californians face sharp points of change: Stay or go? Love or leave? Run or get stuck? Their choices, like our own, reveal life's stark limitations and its wide-open vistas all at once.
Full of lush prose and unforgettable imagery, the stories in Where You Live shine an unforgiving yet shimmering light on longing, loss, and the everyday catastrophes of life.
