About Beautiful Ruins:
From the moment it opens—on a rocky patch of Italian coastline, circa 1962, when a daydreaming young innkeeper looks out over the water and spies a mysterious woman approaching him on a boat—Jess Walter's Beautiful Ruins is a dazzling, yet deeply human, roller coaster of a novel. From the lavish set of Cleopatra to the shabby revelry of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, to the back lots of contemporary Hollywood, Beautiful Ruins is gloriously inventive and constantly surprising—a story of flawed yet fascinating people navigating the rocky shores of their lives while clinging to their improbable dreams.
Hike: Lower half of Sanitas
Looks like it may be chilly, but if it's not raining, we will hike the Sanitas Valley/Dakota Ridge trail (note -we may go up to the first overlook on the east side of Sanitas, but we won't be hiking up the whole way).
We will still meet at Vic's and carpool.
Thanks to Valerie for the book recommendation!
