    1 thought on “California Street

    1. When his wife dies, an old man, rich, mischievous, life loving and arrogant, reflects on his rise to the top of a San Francisco newspaper Along the way, a family secret and an angry and spiteful daughter threaten to unravel all he has worked so hard to mold A great story richly told through a blending of past and present It s too bad this era of writers is relatively unknown to modern readers.

    2. I enjoyed this book I read it because my brother recommended it highly It is a quiet, slow read Written in the late 1950s and set in San Francisco, it begins as one man s rags riches story but becomes a study of his three daughters and the family dynamics It reminded me in ways and was possibly an influence on Jeffrey Archer and Irving Shaw of the 1960s.

    3. I really enjoyed this book Such an odd book though I m not even sure what it was really about you can t quite classify it as adventure or drama It was about a family growing up, the people they were in the beginning and the people they were at the end of the story I will probably read it again someday simply because it is still mysterious to me.

    4. I started this, and was enjoying it, but just hit a rock wall I may pick it up again, but I think it s Gore Vidal s Lincoln for me next.
