Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a wry comedy of manners and a deeply involving portrait of a vanished era.

Review:

"An enormously talented writer — witty but always sympathetic, generous in showing us the secrets of his heart...By writing about what's seemingly different Armistead Maupin always manages to capture what's so hilariously painfully true for all of us." Amy Tan

Review:

"An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A consummate entertainer who has made a generation laugh....It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly." Edmund White, Times Literary Supplement
