Description: A prolific contributor to Herb Caen's San Francisco Chronicle column, Bruce Bellingham has collected his witcisms to present his first book of topical humor.

San Francisco's favorite commentator and comic, Bruce Bellingham tells the story of his arrival in rile Golden West from New Jersey as an 18-year-old, his experiences as a "conscientous objector in the Sexual Revolution, " then quickly moves on to his favorite subject, San Francisco, the city by the Bay.

Bellingham is replete with anecdotes of the famous and infamous in the Bay Area and beyond. "Namedropping is my favorite indoor sport, " writes Bellingham. Through a career "checkered as a cab, " Bellingham has worked as a filmmaker, a chef, a musician, a broadcaster, and a writer. Today he is best known for his newspaper columns in the various Sire Francisco newspapers, for which he originally developed most of the material included in Bellingham by the Bay.

Here he has much to say about everything from the "lifeless armadillo ... proudly displaye in the front window of the Fat Chance Market on Grant Avenue, " to his own on-air performance during the earthquake of 1989, to Boris Yeltsin's weight loss.
