Michael Young from City Lights Books. San Francisco. 8.18.17. Great staff at a great store. Stacey Lewis, Michael's equally interesting colleague who gave me a shout out for shouting out Jessica Lange in my Sam Shepard obit, along with another colleague, schooled me on science fiction, literary possibilities, the city, all in the course of the afternoon. As I left Michael shyly revealed he was poet Al Young's son. When I was growing up my sister Bonnie and I loved Young, a great black artist. That was in our revolutionary days. Those days are back.
