Haslam divides the state into five regions, selecting prose and poetry from each that reflects their history, terrain, and culture. Many Califonias features sixty-seven authors ranging from Jack London to Maxine Hong Kingston, making it the most diverse general-interest anthology available. Gerald W. Haslam, the author of Straight White Male and other award-winning titles, is professor emeritus of English at Sonoma State University. He lives in Northern California. "Many Californias lives up to the promise of its title, uniting writers from various ethnic, historic, regional, and philosophical corners of the state. . . . [S]plendid and thoughtful." -- San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
