The inspirations behind CITY OF GHOSTS are diverse and wide-flung. From so-called “degenerate art” and the Nazi plundering of Europe’s art treasures—as detailed in the recent film The Monuments Men (the non-fiction book on which it was based was one of Kelli’s research sources)—to the famed Art Deco streamliner the City of San Francisco, to the Biggest Little City in the World and San Francisco’s preeminent drag club, Finocchio’s, CITY OF GHOSTS offers much to explore for the curious—and intrepid—reader.
