The first book I’ll finish in 2021 is this one - a delightful story written by the daughter of a woman who ran a huge (illegal) pot brownie operation in San Francisco in the 70s/80s. It brings the city at that remarkable moment to life, from the hippie-dom to Harvey Milk’s murder to the AIDS crisis. Most remarkable is the way that the writer reflects on her parents flaws and quirks with generosity and transparency. I highly recommend this book if you’ve ever had a connection to San Francisco - good or bad!
