DANIEL BACON at Books Inc. Berkeley

San Francisco historian and walking tour guide Daniel Bacon discusses his debut novel, Frisco. In the summer of 1934, a strange silence descended on San Francisco. Streetcars disappeared. Gas stations closed. Theater marquees turned off. Stores and restaurants locked their doors. Butcher shops ran out of meat. The wealthy fled to their country estates. It was as if the city had died. In his debut novel Frisco, Daniel Bacon describes the forces that led to this extraordinary state of affairs.
