An unsung masterpiece from one of fantastic literature's greatest writers.
A long, long time from now, in the valleys of what will no longer be called Northern California, might be going to have lived a people called the Kesh.
But ALWAYS COMING HOME is not the story of the Kesh. Rather it is the stories of the Kesh - stories, poems, songs, recipes - ALWAYS COMING HOME is no less than an anthropological account of a community that does not yet exist, a tour de force of imaginative fiction by one of modern literature's great voices.
