It's hard to think of two writers whose bodies of work over the last 20 years more reflect the evolution of San Francisco. Gold (Carter Beats the Devil, Sunnyside, I Will Be Complete) has written highly-praised fiction and memoir set against the backdrop of the city from the 1890s onward, and Madonna (All Over Coffee, Close Enough for the Angels) has, in his unique combination of pictures and prose, given us an unparalleled portrait of our weird enclave by the Bay. Normally they chat in a cafe alone together in the Mission or North Beach about art and the artist's life, but tonight they're at The Bindery to consider, over a bottle of wine, the throughline of their careers, from their first, miserable jobs (fast food, probably), to their current, miserable jobs (art) to their futures (fast food, probably).  Come join in.
