Cover of my upcoming book, “Cool Don’t Live Here No More–A letter to San Francisco


Looking forward to the release of this wonderful book, which should happen in the next month or so.  Editor F.S. Rosa did a wonderful job of putting together the short stories, poems and essays in this collection.  My brother Ace did a great job on the cover art.  Former San Francisco poet laureate Jack Hirschman had this to say about the book:

“In poems and vignettes, Tony Robles has written the generational memory of San Francisco at the point where alienation, deportations and technological invasions are gutting its soul. This Filipino activist just won’t have it, and neither will you after reading this superb book that restores the sense of a People’s City.”

Looking forward to the book release.  Much gratitude to publisher Jim Mitchell of Ithuriel’s Spear Press, editor F.S. Rosa, and to my mother, without whom, none of this would have happened.
