This event celebrates the release of “San Francisco Appetites and Afterthoughts: In Search of the Good Life by the Golden Gate” from Grizzly Peak Press. Hot on the heels of his first book, ---Sketches from a North Beach Journal--- a sketch of the larger-than-life characters from the California Gold Rush to the present, Ernst Beyl celebrates the release of this his second book---a kaleidoscope of fragments gathered over many years searching for the good life in his hometown---and finding it. The book is a hodgepodge of obsessions that focuses on people, places and pleasures, and will place readers squarely in the middle of the narrative allowing these passions to devolve and swirl about them. Readers will discover the author's many San Francisco appetites and afterthoughts for music (jazz, blues, boogie woogie, rock 'n’ roll), restaurants, saloons, bartenders, cooking and cookbooks, prose, poetry, photography and photographers, old buildings, old girlfriends, and the quirky, bohemian culture of the city.
Ernest Beyl is a San Francisco writer who has long had a love affair with his city. When not researching and writing what he plans as a continuing series of books with San Francisco as a background, Beyl writes a monthly column for the Marina Times.
