At times hilarious, at times heartbreaking, Patricia Dunn’s Last Stop on the 6 is the return of the prodigal daughter to a world of long-buried hurts, political complexities, and female resilience. Set at the dawn of the Gulf War, it tells the story of a young woman grappling with warring identities: that of her upbringing in working-class, Catholic, Italian American Pelham Bay and her new life as a Birkenstock-wearing, vegetarian anti-war activist in Los Angeles.
