About the Book



"In a kaleidoscopic narrative ... bestselling author David Talbot tells the gripping story of San Francisco in the turbulent years between 1967 and 1982--and of the extraordinary men and women who led to the city's ultimate rebirth and triumph."--P. [4] of cover.



Book Synopsis



The critically acclaimed, San Francisco Chronicle bestseller--a gripping story of the strife and tragedy that led to San Francisco's ultimate rebirth and triumph.

Review Quotes




"A gritty corrective to our rosy memories...enthralling, news-driven history...smart and briskly paced tale... I found it hard to put down Season of the Witch." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An ambitious, labor-of-love illumination of a city's soul, celebrating the uniqueness of San Francisco without minimizing the price paid for the city's free-spiritedness... the author encompasses the city's essence... Talbot loves his city deeply and knows it well, making the pieces of the puzzle fit together, letting the reader understand...Talbot takes the reader much deeper than cliché, exploring a San Francisco that tourists never discover." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"Exhaustive research yields penetrating character studies...Talbot incisively relates the atmosphere of service in the Haight...In a surprising ending, Talbot convincingly suggests that imperfect new mayor Dianne Feinstein resurrected the city's heart as it rallied around the 49ers. In exhilarating fashion, Talbot clears the rainbow mist and brings San Francisco into sharp focus." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Talbot presents gripping accounts of both crime sprees and football showdowns. Even people who were there might take away something new, and for others, the book offers a comprehensive introduction to the era." --Booklist
