I totally enjoyed this one and already ordered the next 3 in the series (found them here, of course). These are tales of San Francisco in its hey-day. Lives overlap and intertwine. Short "segments" make for a fast read. Fun and fast, with interesting characters. Some nice, some not so nice, but all with their own story. I wish I had seen the PBS mini-series. I want to live at 28 Barbary Lane and meet Anna Madrigal and the other tenants.
this is the first book in a series of about 5 books. the author lives and works in San Franscico and the book comes from his daily column in the local newspaper.
if you are a child of the '70's and you are not easily offended by pot smoking,gays and lesbians and just plain funny stuff...then read this book and then the rest of the series
A fun read with many interesting characters
