I’m Mark Bittner, the author of a book and the subject of a documentary film, both entitled The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. The subtitle of this blog is “It’s All About Religion and Politics.” But it’s really about anything I want to address. I do think about religion and politics a lot, though, and there will be plenty on both. I’m currently working on a book, Street Song, which is about the years I spent living on the streets of San Francisco, and I’ll be posting progress reports along the way. I recently started the third and final draft. I expect to be finished around mid-2014.
