The Devilrs"s Punchbowl: A Cultural & Geographical Map of California Todayis an anthology edited by Red Hen Pressrs"s Managing Editor, Kate Gale, andLos Angeles Timesreporter and editor Veronique de Turenne. Essays were commissioned from writers living in California, who were asked to reflect on an aspect of the staters"s geography, natural or man-made: Alcatraz Island and its prison; Manzanar and Mt. Whitney; Big Sur and Joshua Tree; Los Angelesrs" oil derricks and Mountain Viewrs"s Google headquarters; the farms of the Central Valley and the redwoods of the Northern Coastland. Does Alcatraz, from its important role in Native American activist history to todayrs"s defunct prison, retain meaning beyond a tourist attraction? How is the expanding border fence between Southern California and Mexico affecting, economically and psychologically, the individuals who live near it? Californiars"s outsized cultural and economic impact on both our country and the rest of the world necessitate a continual taking stock, to prevent losing ourselves in the staters"s constant transformations. The Devilrs"s Punchbowl captures a pivotal time in our countryrs"s history, as some of the staters"s most recognized, complex, and accomplished writers describe their relationship with Californiars"s ever-changing geographic, economic, and psychic landscape.
