I'm feeling nostalgia for the Bay Area at the moment. What are some books that take place there?

Offhand, I can think of Bill Pronzini's books, but, while I'm a great fan of mysteries, I'm not a particular fan of his books.
I'll take anything on the scale from great literature to brain candy. Fiction is not obligatory, but I'd prefer non-fiction to skew towards the 'popular nonfiction' end of the spectrum. The holy grail might be a decent police procedural.
