About this product
- DescriptionPeter Plate's latest vel depicts hell as the underbelly of contemporary San Francisco. One foggy day there brings together bloody ghosts, a dandyish thug, capricious cops, a suicidal punk rocker, a hyper-literate slumlord, and a sweet old lady sent by God to hand out cash from a hijacked armoured car. In Fogtown, Peter Plate uses a loving hand to carve his characters out of hallucination, perversity and tenacity. Fogtown describes an age unmistakeably built on the twentieth century of Nelson Algren and Charles Bukowski.
- Author BiographyNamed a Literary Laureate of San Francisco in 2004, PETER PLATE taught himself to write fiction during eight years spent squatting in abandoned buildings. He is the author of many novels, beginning with Black Wheel of Anger (1990) and continuing through his seven neo-noir psychic histories of San Francisco, where he still lives and writes today.
