A NEW NOVEL FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR JAN BAROSS
Award: First Place-International San Miguel Writers Competition, 2023.
“Don’t tell anyone we’re Democrats,” warned Mother when we moved to Bakersfield. “And for God’s sake, don’t tell them you’re Jewish.”
-Dredged from the cultural abyss of the 1950s in Bakersfield, CA, “Bye-Bye Bakersfield” is the story of a resilient little Jewish girl growing up in the hostile landscape of redneck central.
Joan Gratz, Academy Award winning director/author says: “So funny! I couldn’t put this book down. The young Jewish narrator reminds me of Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” only with a lot more humor.”
Mark Saunders, award winning playwright/author says: “Bye-Bye Bakersfield is one of the best novels I've read this year. A Jewish family struggling to survive as strangers in a strange land. A passionate story, from wildly funny to a deeply touching.
