Gold Fame Citrus Overview

Claire Vaye Watkins’ dystopian novel is set in a near-future California, where a severe drought has left the land barren. A powerful sea of sand continues to advance, the dunes enveloping towns, wildlife, and people in its wake. The story follows Luz and Ray, a young couple hiding out in an abandoned mansion. When they encounter a strange and endearing infant who they affectionately nickname Ig, they are filled with a new sense of purpose and set off on a journey for a better life. Gold Fame Citrus explores spiritual yearning, nature’s depletion and strength, sexual manipulation, the responsibility of parenting, and both the allure and danger of the cult.
