Hey, Tom Sanchez is one of the most notable writers here in San Francisco, having written a bunch of books I really enjoy, including Zoot Suit Murders, King Bongo, and Mile zero.
He'll be on KQED tomorrow, on the fine Forum program, ten am Pacific. (88.5 FM, and online on kqed.org, which is how I'm listening right now.)

Thomas Sanchez's "Rabbit Boss"
KQED Public Radio's Forum presents California Reading, a radio book club featuring fiction about California and by California authors. Each month, listeners are invited to read a selected book and share their thoughts online and during a special hour of Forum.
From the publisher:
A novel of dreams dying, the loss of power, the rebirth of the spirit, Rabbit Boss is a brilliant fictional evocation of the American West. Powerful and exalting, Rabbit Boss tells the story of four generations of Washo in the California and Nevada Sierra.
About the author:
Thomas Sanchez lived for many years in Key West, Mallorca and Paris, where the French Republic awarded him the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres. He currently resides in San Francisco. He is the author of
King Bongo, Mile Zero, Day of the Bees, Zoot-Suit Murders and Rabbit Boss, which was named by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the most important books of the twentieth century.
