The Jacobi family of the 1950s, however, is only part of this novel. A half-century later, at the new millennium, Richard has moved back to the same great house on San Remo Drive in which he spent his adolescence. Of course he seeks to re-create that past of sunshine and lemon groves and innocence; of 78 rpm records, artistic freedom, and all the "early sorrows and many joys" before his family's tragic dissolution. But perhaps the greater task for the adult Richard is simply to lead a decent life, now that he is a famous painter and the head of a new family that is about to face an inescapable tragedy of its own.
San Remo Drive is a novel of many dimensions. It is a large, public book that explores the glamorous life of Hollywood and evokes the landscape of Southern California both as it is now and as it appeared before the migration to it of millions. It is also a personal book, one that traces the trajectory of Richard Jacobi's consciousness as son, brother, husband, lover, and painter.
