Live from a party house in the Haight-Ashbury–made infamous by the 1960s pot bust of Rudolf Nureyev and Dame Margot Fonteyn–comes a collection of stories by the roommates who lived there and the associates who joined them in a grand experiment of madcap living during the '80s and '90s.

With cameos by music and film luminaries like Camper Van Beethoven, Roman Coppola, Matt Dillon and Ginger Coyote, readers can hitch a ride with the colorful inhabitants of 42 Belvedere as they traverse every corner of the City and invite the world through their open door.
