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’ve started the third and final draft. I’ve been at this around eight years now and probably have a year and a half or two to go (as of January 12, 2015).
