"Down-and-out street person George Zumpo personifies San Francisco's Tenderloin district, a neighborhood most natives and tourists do their best to avoid. With deep compassion for his unforgettable characters, George Jansen breathes life into Zumpo and an offbeat cast each of whom carries a personal load of faded ambitions and diminishing hope. In Haunts, readers are treated to a captivating story in which they will discover a common humanity with Zumpo and his ongoing struggle to make sense of his life."
Alfred J. Garrotto, author of There's More: A Novella of Life and Afterlife
"Haunts takes you on an unforgettable journey into the seedy underbelly of San Francisco, a world populated by winos, drug addicts, and prophetic ghosts that pop up with the regularity of the morning mail. As compelling as it is stark, as absorbing as it is repellent, it is one of those rare books that forfeits the safety of convention to tell its story in blood. In places, it reminds me of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises; in other places it is reminiscent of Fellini's Satyricon. I would recommend this book to adventuresome readers and not the faint of heart."
Jansen pulls you into the lives of his on-the-edge-of-sanity characters who populate 1970s San Francisco's SOMA —South of Market. The City was filled with people compelled to leave their origins in search of something different —but what? Find out when Haunts spins everyone on the wheel of Fortune."
