In conversation with Thomas Curwen, LA Times staff writer
Arax, a native son, spent four years traveling the breadth of the Golden
State to explore its singular place in the world. From the marijuana growing
capital of the U.S. to the town that inspired The Grapes of Wrath, Arax
offers a stunning panorama of California in a new century.
Award-winning author and journalist Mark Arax is a co-author of The King of
California-a Los Angeles Times bestseller-and author of In My Father’s Name.
