about this book

"At once a bittersweet love story, a wickedly funny novel of manners and an unsentimental meditation on mortality and the nuclear abyss. Always witty--and still profound--the book paints a truthful picture of our dreadful, comic times."--Vanity Fair

"A splendid achievement, equally convincing in its exhilaration and its sadness."--The New York Times

"The great California novel has been written in verse (and why not?): The Golden Gate gives great joy."--Gore Vidal
