Meet the Authors
A lightly comedic, historical novel, Arroyo tells the parallel stories of a solar-dreaming young man and his semi-clairvoyant, impish mutt during two distinct epochs in Pasadena, California: 1913, as the landmark Colorado Street Bridge suffers a lethal collapse during construction but opens in the fanfare of the automobile age anyway; and 1993, as the refurbished bridge commemorates its 80th birthday in a marquee suburbâ€•one that is perhaps not quite as sophisticated as it appears. Chip Jacobs' debut novel casts a deft eye on the dangers of aesthetic beauty, the perilous side of ambition, and the godly clairvoyance dogs.
