Awesome, Breathtaking, and Unexpected Books, Art, and Film
San Francisco in 1976. A rehearsal space on Skid Row. Punk Rock.
Cheap red wine. Prophetic ghosts. Love and betrayal.

Author: George Jansen

Haunts presents an amazing ride through the back alleys of San Francisco, into a rehearsal studio filled with jealousy, violence and ghostly apparitions, all existing in a city as wondrous as it is repellent. George Zumpo, a down on his luck "half-breed" arrives in the City seeking his wife, his dog and his Volkswagen Westfalia Camper. There he meets homeless drunks, crazy cocaine snorting musicians, and a loose family of friends living in a 1970's South of Market warehouse. A novel as funny as it is dark, as tragic as it is hopeful, Haunts is a captivating portrait of people down on their luck.
