The Days of Anna Madrigal by Armistead Maupin
first published 2015, paperback
Now ninety-two, Mrs. Anna Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her "logical family" in San Francisco. Some members of Anna's family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevada where sixty thousand revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week. Anna herself has another destination in mind. With her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.
