'Maupin is a richly gifted comic author' Observer
The residents of 28 Barbary Lane are back again in this racy, suspenseful and wildly romantic sequel to Tales of the City and More Tales of the City.
DeDe Halcyon Day and Mary Ann Singleton track down a charismatic psychopath.
Michael Tolliver looks for love.
Landlady Anna Madrigal imprisons an anchorwoman in her basement storeroom.
And Armistead Maupin is in firm control . . .
“Like those of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Armistead Maupin's novels have all appeared originally as serials... it is the strength of this approach, with its fantastic adventures and astonishingly contrived coincidences, that make these novels charming and compelling”
“An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco”
The New York Times Book Review
“A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly”
The Times Literary Supplement
“Maupin is a richly gifted comic author”
“San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin”
“[Maupin] is the perfect chronicler of the moral, political, sexual and social fluxes of the world as we have lived and known them... Not only is all human life here, but a hell of a lot besides that you'd never imagine”
“May well be the funniest series of novels currently in progress”
