Most of us have periods of romance with the cities where we live. For Gary Kamiya, the romance has never died.

Cool Gray City of Love brings together personal insight, deeply researched history, colorful reporting, and vivid description to create an unparalleled portrait of San Francisco.

Each of its 49 chapters explores a specific site or intersection in the city, from the mighty Golden Gate Bridge to the raunchy Tenderloin to the soaring sea cliffs at Land’s End to vacant lots and obscure corners.
