Into the Valley opens on the day in July 1967 when B. decides to pass her first counterfeit check and flee San Francisco for the Central Valley. B. is caught between generations. She`s unmarried at 30 and doesn`t understand the new counterculture youths, but she never fit into her mother`s world either (though she liked some of its trappings, the dresses and kid gloves.) B. is beset by a disintegrative anxiety she calls `the carsickness.` The only relief comes in handling the illicit checks and endless driving in the valley.
