The Golden Gate

This novel in verse about a group of California yuppies was one of the most highly praised books of 1986 and a bestseller on both coasts.

Review:

" At once a bittersweet love story, a wickedly funny novel of manners and an unsentimental meditation on mortality and the nuclear abyss. Always witty--and still profound--the book paints a truthful picture of our dreadful, comic times."
-- Vanity Fair
" A splendid achievement, equally convincing in its exhilaration and its sadness."
-- The New York Times
" The great California novel has been written in verse (and why not?): The Golden Gate gives great joy."
--Gore Vidal
