Barbara Rose Brooker

Even with Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries, Stephen Elliott's Adderall Diaries, and my own forthcoming Flintstones Vitamins Diaries (just you wait) on the scene, the topsy-turvy pharmacological reminiscence subgenre of literature still has room for Barbara Rose Brooker's Viagra Diaries (Llumina Press, $20). It's a novel about an aging San Francisco columnist doing research on the mating habits of fogeys. It's worth noting that Brooker didn't publish her first novel until she was 50, and apparently got pretty busy, as it were, after that.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
