Overview

Letters from the Nude Lake is a humorous and often earthy chronicle of a transplanted New Englander's life and loves in the City of San Francisco.

The author was raised in a small New England town and, after finishing college, migrated to San Francisco in search of fame and fortune. Always one to look before he leaped, he spent the next several years checking his options by ambling from one part-time job to another, in each case sampling and savoring the diverse cultures of the Bay Area. In the early nineties David studied for and received certification as a Registered Nurse and a year later married his nursing school lab partner.

A canny observer of the rich broth of life in San Francisco, David made a practice of recording his observations and comments in letters to his sister, brother, and parents - a sampling of which make up this book.
