For more than three decades, Armistead Maupins Tales of the City has blazed its own trail through popular culture and entranced millions around the world.Tales of the City begins with Mary Ann Singleton, a na´ve young woman from Cleveland, Ohio, who moves to San Francisco, seeking a change in her life. The year is 1976 and Mary Ann finds herself living at 28 Barbary Lane, where her life quickly becomes intertwined with those of her colorful neighborsthe libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey, still in a 1960s trance; Michael Mouse Tolliver, forever in bright-eyed pursuit of Mr. Right; and their marijuana-growing landlady, the indefatigable Mrs. Madrigal. Uproarious and moving, Tales of the City is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that forever changed the way we live.

Review:

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
