Books Inc. Mountain View proudly welcomes columnist and author Kevin Fisher-Paulson to the shop for a celebration of his book Secrets of the Blue Bungalow!
For eight years, thousands of readers across San Francisco and beyond have laughed, cried, and felt inspired by the true, tender, and hilariously honest tales of a gay-parented, mixed-race, superheroic family growing up together in a Bedlam Blue Bungalow... located somewhere in the Outer, Outer, Outer, Outer Excelsior neighborhood.
Told every Wednesday by SF Chronicle columnist Kevin Fisher-Paulson, 65 of these evocative stories were first collected in a 2019 book entitled How We Keep Spinning...! the journey of a family in stories. Four years later, this volume shares 75 more true tales of family life at the very edge of San Francisco, as experienced by Kevin, Brian, Aidan, Zane and their faithful rescue dogs.
Kevin Thaddeus Fisher-Paulson lives with his husband Brian, their two sons, and their four rescue dogs in San Francisco. When not writing, he serves as Chief Deputy for the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. He earned a degree in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame in 1980 and subsequently studied writing with Dorothy Allison, Jessica Hagedorn and Steve Abbott and has attended courses at the University of Iowa and the University of Oregon. His first book A SONG FOR LOST ANGELS was published by Fearless Books, and earned a Finalist status three times in two different independent publishing contests. It is now published under his own imprint, Two Penny Press. The first collection of Kevin's SF Chronicle columns, HOW WE KEEP SPINNING...! was published in collaboration with Fearless Literary in 2019.
