Since 1976, Maupin's Tales of the City has etched itself upon the hearts and minds of its readers, both straight and gay. From a groundbreaking newspaper serial in the San Francisco Chronicle to a bestselling novel to a critically acclaimed PBS series, Tales (all six of them) contains the universe--if not in a grain of sand, then in one apartment house.From the Back Cover:
“Remarkable. . . delectable, addictive. . . ” - New York Times Book Review
“Sparkling entertainments. . . lit by a glowing humanity that brings each character to vivid, poignant life.” - Publishers Weekly
Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City has blazed a singular trail through popular culture - from a groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel to a television event that entranced millions around the world. The first of six novels about the denizens of 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a wry comedy of manners and a deeply involving portrait of a vanished era.
“His life-is-good-but-sloppy soap operas are marked by solid craft, superb dialogue, and what used to be called heart.” - Entertainment Weekly
