"Namedropping is my favorite sport" confesses San Francisco commentator Bruce Bellingham, who shares his sharp, witty observations on popular culture. A prolific contributor to Herb Caen's San Francisco Chronicle column and a well-known columnist himself, Bellingham's collection is packed with anecdotes on the famous and infamous in the Bay Area and beyond. No one is safe from Bellingham's keen humor.
Growing up in New Jersey, Bellingham always knew he'd eventually live in San Francisco. "It was its mystery, its rich literary history and its undercurrent of menace and crime that I always found so attractive," he says. "One of my heroes is Oscar Wilde and he invented the line, 'Its an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be in San Francisco.' I'm still hoping to locate myself one day." This volume of topical humor and remembrances is essential for any lover of San Francisco.
