The Golden Gate charts two years in the tightly intertwined lives of five young, attractive, and complex characters. In their early- and mid-twenties, each is dealing with the intoxicating and disorienting openness of possibilities presented by San Francisco in the early 1980s. Inspired by Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin, Seth’s novel-in-verse follows Pushkin’s themes while moving its verse and its story into a poignantly modern setting.
