ABOUT THE BOOK – Through meditations on race, culture, and family, One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir in Essays (Black Rose Writing, 2019) tells the story of a lesbian Jewish single mother raising a black son in Los Angeles. A memoir-in-essays, it examines life’s surprising changes that come through choice or circumstance, often seemingly out of nowhere, and sometimes darkly humorous—even as the situations are dire.
