The Beach of Yesteryear: Stories and Essays

 



(Publishing-NewsWire.com, June 20, 2022 ) Denver, CO and Honolulu, HI – Local political writer Lloyd Lim has released a new collection of short stories and essays. In addition to writing on policy and politics, he has published several non-fiction books, but this marks a return to fiction writing after decades of pursuing his career in government. The Beach of Yesteryear has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.



“Only one of these stories is set in Hawaii, the title story, but the idea of ‘yesteryear’ runs through the entire set,” the author explains. “Memory, misperception and self-deception are so much a part of being human and can lead to outcomes both funny and strange—and my fiction is inextricably intertwined with these ideas. I also included many previously published essays on policy and culture that are thematically related.”



This collection takes readers on a rapid-fire tour of the human capacity for wistful remembrance, flawed memories, self-deception and cruelty to others, without losing sight of the humor in it all. Mr. Lim’s writing is simple and concise, but his ideas about the human condition are subtle and complex. Readers who enjoy a certain amount of ambiguity and ambivalence—who like to mull over the meaning of a short story as a reflection of their own present concerns—will find this collection intriguing and entertaining.



“Drawing a bright line of distinction between fiction and non-fiction may not always make sense when reflecting upon contemporary life and society,” Mr. Lim says. His essays cover a dazzling array of topics, but are always pointed and relevant. Because he worked in government, taught in a classroom and is a musician and writer, he doesn’t just draw from academic theory or creative imagination. He isn’t merely looking in from the outside but with the insights of a practitioner. In short, there is a rare variety and range in this volume.
