Praise for More Tales Of The City

“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 makes these novels charming and compelling”

Literary Review

“San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin”


“Maupin is a richly gifted comic author”


“A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly”

Times Literary Supplement

“I have read Maupin's first two books three times already and shall probably read them again before too long. I love them for very much the same qualities that make me love the novels of Dickens”

Christopher Isherwood

“[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”
