Fiction Book Review: MOTHER ROAD by Dorothy Garlock, Author. Warner $ (p) ISBN The author of A Place Called Rainwater (and dozens more) is back with another sweetly.   Mother Road is a book that I've been wanting to read without realizing that I've been wanting it. It takes center stage along the familiar (to me) road of Ro at a small gas station/campground for travelers to rest up before they go on their way. It's a fascinating read, and the characters all feel very real.4/5.

Mother Road by playwright Octavio Solis tells of a Latino American farm worker and a journey across the country. OPB's Think Out Loud Octavio Solis on growing up . I liked Mother Road best in the first half of the book, when Leona and Yates are strangers to each other and Yates is new to the town, and we get to know the cast of characters as he does, from the outside in. As the book goes on and the plot featuring Virgil develops, other characters’ viewpoints keep popping in, everyone from the local. The man ’s wife and the boy ’s mother, in The Road she only appears through the man’s memories and dreams. While the man reacted to the decline and destruction of humanity with a dogged perseverance, the woman eventually gives in to despair. She believes that it is inevitable that she will be raped, murdered, and eaten, so she decides to escape that fate by committing suicide. “Mother Road,” directed by Rauch (making it the final world premiere of his OSF tenure), is set in the present and begins in Southern California, where Steinbeck’s novel ended.
