“I don’t want to die anywhere else,” writes José Vadi in “Inter State,” his new essay collection about California. Vadi explores what he calls our “disjointed mosaic of a state” from his vantage point as a poet, skateboarder, laid-off tech worker and grandson  of a Central Valley farmworker. We talk to Vadi about California and the variegated experiences of its inhabitants.


José Vadi, author, "Inter State: Essays from California"
