Summary:

Topanga Canyon is home to two couples on a collision course. Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacker lead an ordered sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: he is a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor. Mexican illegals Candido and America Rincon desperately cling to their vision of the American Dream as they fight off starvation in a makeshift camp deep in the ravine. These four and their opposing worlds gradually intersect in what becomes a tragicomedy of error and misunderstanding.

    A very timely read. Fascinating account of the life struggle of a pair of Mexican immigrants trying to survive amongst upper class Southern Californians. The accidental Thanksgiving wildfire they caused is relevant now to us living here in Sonoma County. Narrated by the author.
