Since you are part of the San Fran Center for the book, I assume you are from the Bay area. I used to live in San fran and in Oakland for a bit. Boy do I miss it living here in Buffalo. Not much culture here but I may try and find your book in a Buffalo library anyway b/c you never know what you'll find in places unexpected. Peace my new friend and cousin.
