From the Publisher
"California is the only state in the Union that has flourished beyond all expectations, primarily because it has always been all things to all people. And like the seduction of the Muses, she always appears in the garb of our own desires..."
So writes Thomas Steinbeck in "Montalvo, Myths and Dreams of Home," one of twenty-seven stories featured in MY CALIFORNIA, an extraordinary creative outpouring from the states literary community in support of the California Arts Council. MY CALIFORNIA is a collaboration between Angel City Press in Santa Monica and CaliforniaAuthors.com.

I'm not sure I'd call all the authors "great writers" but most of them were comfortable with words.

I wanted to share my unpleasent experience with the rest of the world. I normally NEVER make customer comments but I'm hoping to save another student the trouble of trying to save a few bucks by buying used books from Amazon's afiallates.
This book flows very quickly, and before you know it, you've finished it and wish there were more!
