It was the time of the assassinations of Harvey Milk and Robert Opel and his Fey Way Gallery. It was the time of the White Night riot. It was the time of the burning of the Barracks South of Market. It was the time when the mysterious gay cancer first sent the city of San Francisco into hysteria.
This moving story brims with ideas and meticulous details. Entertaining, sharp-witted, and totally enthralling, this story chronicles an extraordinary time in an extraordinary place that shall never be forgotten.
San Francisco's where you go to lose a lover.
