Excerpt from The Native Son

The only drawback to writing about California is that scenery and climate - and weather even - will creep in. Inevitably anything you produce sounds like a cross between a railroad folder and a circus program. You cant discuss the people without describing their background; for they reflect it perfectly; or their climate, because it has helped to make them the superb beings they are.

Unique is a persistent temptation.
