Growing up in an era when San Francisco was just beginning its rise to an international city of world class stature, the author recounts a tale of a neighborhood and its children through the eyes of a young boy. This was when the price of real estate was not as inflated nor important as it is today, when kids were able to roam the streets without fear, and the town was defined by its Catholic parishes and schools. San Francisco was a middle and working class city that disappeared long ago but remains in the minds and hearts of those who remember and hope it could be the same again. The City is only as vibrant as the young who inhabit it—and the legacy they leave is only as vital as what they will be allowed to share. This is a memory of where San Francisco was headed before it turned away from its most valuable asset: children. Described by the late author and professor Leonard Michaels “as compelling and important a reference to a certain place and time as any book I have read” And by Josephine Miles as “a lovely study of characters at their most innocent.” Winner of the Eisner Prize for literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
