Soon to be a Netflix series starring Ellen Page and Laura Linney . . .

'Some of the sharpest and most speakable dialogue you are ever likely to read' Guardian
______________________

A holiday in the redwoods goes uproariously awry when the opposing sexes camp out rather too close to each other for comfort.

Among those entangled in the mayhem are DeDe Halcyon, reformed debutante, troubled house-husband Brian Hawkins, and the irrepressible Michael 'Mouse' Tolliver (arguably Maupin's most beloved creation).

Significant Others, the fifth self-contained chronicle in the Tales of the City saga, is a cunningly observed class comedy that's sure to be relished by the cognoscenti and by new readers alike.

Praise for Significant Others

“Maupin is a richly gifted comic author... there is room in Armistead Maupin's universe for all of us”

Observer

“Comedy in its most classical form... some of the sharpest and most speakable dialogue you are ever likely to read”

Jonathan Coe, Guardian

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

Independent

“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

“Wise, witty, loving and caring about the foibles and frailties we all seem to have”

David Hockney

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