Sinopse

The second edition in the HiStory of Santa Monica short story series, Atwoods new collection features alienated characters living in seaside city of Santa Monica and surrounding cities of L.A., and Hollywood. Atwood doesnt hesitate to set his stories during various time periods but the struggle to survive remains the same. HoSM2 does not pick up where HoSM left off; instead it wanders through a time continuum - the 1940s, 1950s and into the 21st Century - as the characters, however intellectually and technological evolved, seem to struggle with similar issues of the heart.About HoSMThe collection is thematically linked by both the characters-who are struggling to realize their Hollywood dreams and the setting-Santa Monica, California. A seemingly peaceful seaside city, Santa Monica is also a purgatory where the characters must face failure and loss-as well as their demons and ghosts. Family and ritual are consistent motifs throughout the collection, as are the themes of escape, addiction, redemption, reparation, religion, and death. Whether it is a young couple looking to buy their first home or a man returning to his hometown for a funeral or a baptism, readers will find the everyday rituals in these stories identifiable in many ways.
