The tenants of 28 Barbary Lane have fled their cozy nest for adventures far afield.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco.” 

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Maupin has always been a humane storyteller, and an accessible one. His life-is-good-but-sloppy soap operas are marked by solid craft, surperb dialogue, and what used to be called heart.” 

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Maupin writes with warmth, acuity and tremendous wit about ordinary people learning to live with themselves and one another. Read him.” 

    Harpers & Queen

  • “Sparkling entertainments...lit by a glowing humanity that brings each character to vivid, poignant life.”

    " Second in the 'Tales of the City' franchise. I have read this book twice now (the second time in 2005) and I am getting ready to read it again (June 2007) "

    " More Tales of the City (Showtime Tie-In Edition) by Armistead Maupin (1998) "

    " I don't really understand the reviews mentionning the role of the city in this book... In the first one, yes, San Francisco was almost a character as important as Mary-Ann, Michael and so. But the sequel doesn't have that same atmosphere of freedom and frivolity I felt and liked in the first Tales. The action could almost take place anywhere else, in another town. It's a pity, because without it, the soap opera that is the plot is less delightful, the coincidences are too blatant. In spite of that, I was hooked, and I still read it really fast. I guess I'm just a little sad about what it could have been... "
