One for the Road: Local Girl Makes History
The result is a smart and funny memoir mixed with historical research and reflections on politics and culture too. From the publisher:
Full of surprises and plot twists along the way, her adventures are quirky, fun and informative. The tension between private memory and public history draws us deeper and deeper into each investigation, and small places in California come to symbolize larger political questions in the United States.
Frank's collection of essays is accompanied by photos, maps, and driving directions, producing a nice combo of memoir complete with practical guidebook details to boot! She'll be appearing at City Lights in early January to talk about the book.
