Editorial Reviews

Review

Conrad's blend of autobiography and West Coast cultural expose covers his night club, the El Matador, which for ten years hosted stars like Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball. Conrad's memoir of these years and his encounters with stars presents a lively slice of San Francisco life. A fine leisure choice. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
This book will bring back memories of the fun, exciting, wonderful days and nights of the 60s in San Francisco. Names,places and incidents I had forgotten about were brought back to life by Barnaby Conrad. I found myself laughing out loud at the anecdotes shared. A great gift for anyone who lived in SF at the time. Nostalgia at its best!

If you were around North Beach in the mid-60's, you know what an amazing experience it was to be able to see top world-famous entertainers nightly performing or visiting and hanging out with you. Jazz greats, famous comedians, bands, vocalists, the very best was there. The names and places he writes about are accurate. I would have liked even more!

This is an amazing memoir of a magical time. The stories are astounding and compellingly recounted. What a memorable life. I also recommend Conrad's earlier memoir Fun While It Lasted about his career as a bullfighter in the late 1940's.
