The author—a young California writer—reflects on historian Kevin Starr’s multi-volume history of California and the California dream. While the California dream is tarnished and its survival is questioned in the final volume of Starr’s opus, Robinson suggests that the future of the dream may yet be redeemed by pragmatic young Californians under no illusions about its limits.
