It's time for Peter Plate's publisher to stop telling his readers that he "taught himself to write fiction during eight years spent squatting in abandoned buildings."After eight novels, he's established his authority: He can write, and he certainly knows his terrain.He's been working it since his first novel, One Foot Off the Gutter (1995), through Snitch Factory, Police and Thieves, and beyond-the titles alone make his mission clear.Plate writes, with succinct, noir-style intensity, about the city's panhandlers, drug addicts, pickpockets, and hookers, its aged or unlucky poor in their roach-filled "residential" hotels.
In Plate's San Francisco, the downtrodden take the stage, and the rest of us, for a change, are invisible."Fog was murdering the street," he says in his new novel.
