Connie and David begin the interview discussing the context of the book in a countercultural region of Los Angeles, and how the story takes snippets from David’s life, but is not autobiographical. They proceed to talk about the nature of families during the 1960s and how the concept of divorce was a novelty, and the effects of divorce on children within a family. Connie and David continue on to talk about how the mistakes the counterculture’s parents made should be balanced by newer generations’ involvement in their households without becoming overinvolved, and how the faults of these parents affect the development of the narrative’s children, before considering the idea of frontiers in Los Angeles and the clash of ethnicities and cultures in the period the novel is set in. David then discusses his future projects, and Connie closes the interview requesting an autograph for her copy of the book.
