Author Joshua Mohr talks about the Mission District as muse and his new Mission District set novel, Damascus.

When writer Joshua Mohr needs inspiration, all he has to do is walk out his front door. On any given night in the Mission District, he might find a pop-up Playskool rock band, a chain-saw juggler in Dolores Park or a sidewalk vendor selling bacon-wrapped hot dogs to the drunks after last call.
