There's writings covering everything from LSD acid-parties to how AIDS was handled when it emerged to writer's attitudes to the place.
Lovingly presented with some beautiful photos, this book captures the spirit of the place as well as that of the past.

I bought this book on a short vacation to San Francisco. I knew little about the city, and my reason for going was a low air fare. After reading these diverse stories (not all of which are flattering to the city), I feel like I know much more about the city and people than if I had read a travel guide, a straight history, or a fictional acount. Editor John Miller has done a great job picking and arranging the stories. I am so impressed with this collection that I am getting other books in this series (New Orleans, Alaska, Chicago), even though I have no special interest in any of the places.
