New Novel About SSFL, “God Went Like That” (LA Review of Books)
Loyola Law School professor Yxta Maya Murray has a new novel out called God Went Like That. The book extensively covers many details of the Santa Susana Field Lab story, presented through the lens of a variety of fictional characters. The Los Angeles Review of Books wrote that “In God Went Like That, Murray perfectly melds her legal training with empathetic storytelling to create a gripping, vivid, and ultimately moving novel that serves as a powerful indictment of governmental malfeasance and structural environmental racism. All the while, she creates intimate and authentic mini-portraits of the victims as they try to understand and cope with the devastating harm caused by a government and alleged experts they should have been able to trust.”
