Fun books to read: The French Revolution

The French Revolution by Matt Stewart, one of many fun books to read

The French Revolution, a Novel by Matt Stewart

An homage to the wackiness that is San Francisco. And apparently that is Matt Stewart’s brain, as well. Not French, but at times revolting,  Esmerelda Van Twinkle loves to eat.  A former pastry chef, she’s now livin’ large—huge, actually—as a copy shop manager on upper Market Street, right in my old neighborhood. I even know the copy shop. A hook-up with a homeless man leaves a bun in her oven… How could that not lead to a fun read? Check it out at Goodreads.
