Catherine James longed to get away from her young, beautiful, and wickedly irresponsible mother: to her beloved grandmother or glamorous Aunt Claire or dashing race-car driver father—who had never been a part of her life. She had not wanted to escape to a California orphanage.
It wasn’t until a chance meeting with a very young Bob Dylan that Catherine was inspired to make her escape.
