"Meet Irv, Dorna, Junior, Jackie and Angelo, the Miller family of Petaluma circa 1956 and in the two decades that follow. Who better to introduce you than Chris Riebli who has known them all his life, who is intimately familiar with their work and their dreams, their desires, fears and regrets. Here are twelve unsentimental tales told with loving attention and perfect pitch. These Millers of Petaluma belong to Chris Riebli in the way that Winesburg, Ohio belongs to Sherwood Anderson, or as the Salinas Valley belongs to John Steinbeck."
Daniel Coshnear, author of Jobs & Other Preoccupations
