From the introduction by David L. Ulin: "For me, Cape Cod is a repository of memory: forty summers in the same house will do that to you. But it is also a landscape of hidden tensions, which rise up when we least anticipate. In part, this has to do with social aspiration, which is one of the things that brought my family, like many others, to the Cape. In part, it has to do with social division, which has been a factor since at least the end of the nineteenth century, when then summer trade began."
"A Warmer, Fuzzier Los Angeles" is from the April 30, 2016 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by David L. Ulin and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
