附註 "Ruth Galm's spare, poetic debut novel, set in the American West of early Joan Didion, traces the drifting path of a young woman caught between generations as she skirts the law and her own oppressive anxiety. Into the Valley opens on the day in July 1967 when B. decides to pass her first counterfeit check and flee San Francisco for the Central Valley. B. is caught between generations. She's unmarried at 30 and doesn't understand the new counterculture youths, but she never fit into her mother's world either (though she liked some of its trappings, the dresses and kid gloves.) B. is beset by a disintegrative anxiety she calls "the carsickness." The only relief comes in handling the illicit checks and endless driving in the valley. As she travels the bare, anonymous landscape, meeting an array of other characters--an alcoholic professor, a bohemian teenage girl, a criminal admirer--B.'s flight becomes that of a woman unraveling, a person lost between who she is and who she cannot yet be"-- Provided by publisher
