THIS BOOK IS NOW OUT OF PRINT Hymn California moves--and by "moves" I mean it is a book of motion, of MOVEMENT. It takes you from southern swamps to balconies in Brooklyn to Portland porches and back again--with a fluid, even pace. It is a road novel, an adventure book, a work of verbs and action. If the characters seem lost or restless, it's not because they're misguided wanderers or seekers, it's because there is medicine in leaving hard times behind you. It's because there is joy in the tires and highways of America. Gnade's book is about America and the road, but, more importantly, it's about PEOPLE, about their stories, and about the love they have for each other. Gnade is a damn good storyteller, and, not only that, he has some damn good stories. -Trans-Siberian author Bart Schaneman
