The road past Altamont
In The Road Past Altamont, Roy daringly returns to the same characters and the nearly identical timespan of Street of Riches, but by looking at her subjects with an entirely fresh vision, she creates a wholly new and deeply personal story of young Christine’s decision to become a writer.
This haunting and poignant tale weaves a delicate but substantial network of impressions, emotions, and human relationships.
