NATIONAL BOOK FOUNDATION 5 UNDER 35 PICK. LONGLISTED FOR THE CENTER FOR FICTION'S FIRST NOVEL PRIZE. Named one of the Best Books of 2018 by NPR, Bookforum and Bustle. One of Entertainment Weekly's 10 Best Debut Novels of 2018. An Amazon Best Book of the Month and named a fall read by Buzzfeed, Nylon, Entertainment Weekly, Elle, Vanity Fair, Vulture, Refinery29 and Mind Body Green A gorgeous, raw debut novel about a young woman braving the ups and downs of motherhood in a fractured America In Lydia Kiesling’s razor-sharp debut novel, The Golden State, we accompany Daphne, a young mother on the edge of a breakdown, as she flees her sensible but strained life in San Francisco for the high desert of Altavista with her toddler, Honey. Bucking under the weight of being a single parent—her Turkish husband is unable to return to the United States because of a “processing error”—Daphne takes refuge in a mobile home left to her by her grandparents in hopes that the quiet will bring clarity. But clarity proves elusive. Over the next ten days Daphne is anxious, she behaves a little erratically, she drinks too much. She wanders the town looking for anyone and anything to punctuate the long hours alone with the baby. Among others, she meets Cindy, a neighbor who is active in a secessionist movement, and befriends the elderly Alice, who has traveled to Altavista as she approaches the end of her life. When her relationships with these women culminate in a dangerous standoff, Daphne must reconcile her inner narrative with the reality of a deeply divided world. Keenly observed, bristling with humor, and set against the beauty of a little-known part of California, The Golden State is about class and cultural breakdowns, and desperate attempts to bridge old and new worlds. But more than anything, it is about motherhood: its voracious worry, frequent tedium, and enthralling, wondrous love.

Things Happen When Two Agree is a story about how my husband and I managed to live and be there for each other. When I was down, he was a caretaker for me. He took care of me after I had my hip replacement and when I went through an almost near death situation. I came very close to dying. My family thought that every day would be my last day. James held on in faith with me believing that God would restore my health as He had promised me. God continued to tell me to just trust Him and I did. I got down to 120 pounds from 200 pounds, but God is faithful. 2 Timothy 2:12, 13 tell us, If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him: If we deny Him, He will also deny us: If we are faithful, if we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself. James met with a serious accident and I became his caretaker in May of 2002. He was not bedridden, but he needed a lot of care. The Lord had raised me up on my feet and I was strong enough to take care of him. When we took our marriage vows 57 years ago, we planned to stick by them. We promised to love each other in sickness and in health until death separated us. This is what has kept us together through the hard times and the good times; we vowed to love and stay together to the end.
