A companion novel to the bestselling and NBA-longlisted Last Night at the Telegraph Club, set in Marin County in 2013, during the summer the Supreme Court overturned California's law forbidding gay marriage.
Aria Tang West had plans for her summer after high school and before MIT. Then an ill-advised party hookup with a forgettable boy ends with nonconsensual topless pictures on Tumblr, and Aria quickly finds her invitation to Cape Cod retracted and her flight to Marin County to stay with grandmother booked. But the summer of 2013 in the Bay is a momentous one for Aria, for the working-class queer community she finds herself in, and for her artist grandmother. It's the kind of summer that changes a life's trajectory forever.
Set against the backdrop of the first of the major Supreme Court decisions that brought marriage equality to the United States, Aria's coming-of-age story is deftly entwined with a poignant note of closure for Lily and Kath from Last Night at the Telegraph Club.
