"Metcalf tells her story through layer upon layer of memories and anecdotes — her own and her family’s. The author’s writing style is plain and straightforward...This understated technique gives the book an almost experimental feel that will likely frustrate readers looking for a more focused narrative."

Synopsis

Rambler Rose is the story of coming of age in coastal California during the 1950s and 60s. It's about family relationships, American pop and political culture, and race and religion. The setting of California in the mid 20th century is a character unto herself. Other key members of the cast include Teri Metcalf's mother, father and stepfather. Girlfriends, boyfriends and lovers appear in supporting roles, along with an assortment of colorful relatives. Through her narrative of experiences with people, places and things, she explores how those connections shaped her development and her understanding of the world.
