The author, "a newspaperman and playwright, was an intimate of that strange coterie which flourished spectacularly in and around San Francisco in the nineties [that's the 1890s] and the early years of [the 20th] century. [He] early acquired, from his newspaper training, the habit of taking copious notes of what he saw and heard, and the result is a memoir which recreates men and scenes with astonishing vitality." .
