Left Coast Writers® Salon
In this love story of impossible odds, award-winning writer Tim Z. Hernandez weaves a rich and visionary portrait of Bea Franco, the real woman behind famed American author Jack Kerouac's The Mexican Girl. Set against an ominous backdrop of California in the 1940s, deep in the agricultural heartland of the Great Central Valley, Mañana Means Heaven ($24.95) reveals the desperate circumstances that lead a married woman to an illicit affair with an aspiring young writer traveling across the United States.
