Every word a woman writes changes the story of the world, revises the official version.

Golden Days Featured on NPR’s You Must Read This

An Apocalyptic Romp Through The ‘Golden’ State by Gabrielle Zevin

Forgive me, Facebook! I do not always want to tell people what I like. This flaw in my character puts me at odds with much of modern life, which is, of course, organized around a relentless cycle of recommendation.

I’ve always been this way. When I love a new band, I selfishly dread the moment they’ll hit Saturday Night Live. When I love a book, particularly a quirky one, I have been known to avoid reviews and especially the comments beneath reviews. Sometimes, I just don’t want to know when people dislike what I adore. But make no mistake: I do adore Carolyn See’s Golden Days, a slim, messy, sexy, funny, ridiculously ambitious, probably easy-to-tear-apart novel about the end (or the beginning?) of the world.
