Literary San Francisco : a Pictorial History from its Beginnings to the Present
Literary San Francisco surveys, in photographs and incisive commentary, the literary greats and eccentric dreamers who lived in or left their mark on the city. Here is the full sweep of its literary history, from the California Indian oral tradition and the brawling frontier, thought the insurgent counterculture, to today's continuing San Francisco renaissance. The authors distill the essence of San Francisco's literary life and its relation to the larger American scene.
The Book Club of California Library’s copy is inscribed: "lst Ed. A presumptious book! Where are Peter B. Kyne, Stewart Edward White and other San Franciscans? Ken Kesey?? Migod!!!."
