Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco

Jenna Polito | August 15, 2013 | Story

Your book is: Cool Gray City of Love

You bring Gary Kamiya’s Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco on your urban wanderings. In his new book, the author, a co-founder of and previously a culture critic and book editor for the Examiner, presents an in-depth reflection on sights and intersections in the city. He captures the experience of walking through San Francisco, delving into history, first-hand reporting, and personal insight to flesh out places we think we already know. Throughout Cool Gray City of Love, Kamiya proves there’s always more to learn, whether the object of study is the Golden Gate Bridge, the Farallon Islands, or even a vacant lot.
