Praise For…

“Exhaustive research yields penetrating character studies…Talbot incisively relates the atmosphere of service in the Haight…In a surprising ending, Talbot convincingly suggests that imperfect new mayor Dianne Feinstein resurrected the city’s heart as it rallied around the 49ers. In exhilarating fashion, Talbot clears the rainbow mist and brings San Francisco into sharp focus.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Talbot presents gripping accounts of both crime sprees and football showdowns. Even people who were there might take away something new, and for others, the book offers a comprehensive introduction to the era.” —Booklist

“A gritty corrective to our rosy memories…enthralling, news-driven and briskly paced tale... I found it hard to put down Season of the Witch." —San Francisco Chronicle

“An ambitious, labor-of-love illumination
of a city’s soul, celebrating the uniqueness of San Francisco without
minimizing the price paid for the city’s free-spiritedness… the author
encompasses the city’s essence… Talbot loves his city deeply and knows it well,
making the pieces of the puzzle fit together, letting the reader
understand…Talbot takes the reader much deeper than cliché, exploring a San
Francisco that tourists never discover.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
