Peter Plate. Fogtown (2004) 176 pp. [tpo]
Publisher’s description: “One foggy day in San Francisco brings together bloody ghosts, a dandyish thug, capricious cops, a suicidal punk rocker, a hyperliterate slumlord, and a sweet old lady sent by God to hand out cash from a hijacked armored car.” Note: Author Peter Plate taught himself to write fiction during eight years spent squatting in abandoned buildings in San Francisco.
