Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The calamity-prone residents of 28 Barbary Lane are at it again in this deliciously dark novel of romance and betrayal. While Anna Madrigal imprisons an anchorwoman in her basement, Michael Tolliver looks for love at the National Gay Rodeo, DeDe Halcyon Day and Mary Ann Singleton track a charismatic psychopath across Alaska, and society columnist Prue Giroux loses her heart to a derelict living in San Francisco park.

Review:

"What makes Maupin's writing so rich and humorous is the way he juxtaposes the goings-on of irreversibly different worlds, flirtatiously overlapping them at times." St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Review:

"I love Maupin's books for very much the same qualities that make me love the novels of Dickens." Christopher Isherwood

Review:

"Maupin has a genius for observation. His characters have the timing of vaudeville comics, flawed by human frailty and fueled by blind hope." Denver Post
