Read full description of the books:
Finally back in print, Jane Vandenburgh's brilliant debut-startlingly idiosyncratic, intelligent, funny, and painfully moving . It's southern California in the early Sixties, and Charlotte is a teenager, which is bad enough. She also has strange grandparents, with whom she lives, a schizophrenic ventriloquist alcoholic mother who appears and disappears regularly from her life, and only vague information about the father who died before Charlotte was born.With so much craziness in the family, Charlotte figures, whether it's nature or nurture, she's doomed. In Failure to Zigzag, Jane Vandenburgh gracefully zigzags between hilarity and sorrow as she recounts Charlotte's attempts to grow up and to practice sanity as a form of revenge.

Read information about the authorJane Vandenburgh is a fifth-generation Californian, who says, “My writing concerns itself with place — both temporal and geographic — and how place entwines with personal history. I’m interested in what’s its been to be a Westerner and a female and a member of Generation Huge, the 77 million who came of age just as the Civil Rights and antiwar movements were causing the culture of the U.S. to drastically change.”
She has taught literature and writing at U.C. Davis, at Georgetown and at the George Washington University in Washington, DC, and has been a Writer-in-Residence at St. Mary’s in Moraga, California.
Married and the mother of two children, she is also the author of the novels, Failure to Zigzag and The Physics of Sunset, the nonfiction book, The Architecture of the Novel, and the memoirs, A Pocket History of Sex in the Twentieth Century, and most recently, The Wrong Dog Dream. She lives in Point Richmond, California.
