“The Story of a Marriage” + 1950s + the Sunset?

Anybody else read Andrew Sean Greer’s 2008 novel, “The Story of a Marriage”? I just finished it and I can’t stop thinking about it. This is the story of a young black family settling in the Sunset after WWII. Most of the action takes place here in 1953. I didn’t live in the Sunset in that era, but I bet a lot of you did. I’d sure like your opinion as to whether Greer paints an accutate picture of life in our Sunset.
