Completed shortly before her untimely death from breast cancer, Kathi Kamen Goldmark’s novel Her Wild Oats is a honky-tonk road story about two unlikely pals: A smart young woman, Arizona Rosenblatt, leaves home and her role as assistant to a high-powered Hollywood executive when she discovers her husband is having an affair with a woman from Jews for Jesus; and thirteen-year-old Otis Ray “Wild Oats” Pixlie, boy genius harmonica player. In the end, Otis Ray learns what it means to be an adult, Arizona discovers the life she wants, and they both figure out the true meaning of love and family.
With humor and tenderness, Kathi Kamen Goldmark has created characters who we would love to have as companions on our own escape.” - Amy Tan, author of The Valley of Amazement
