Inspiration for the Netflix Limited Series, Tales of the City

The second novel in the beloved Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin’s best-selling San Francisco saga.

The tenants of 28 Barbary Lane have fled their cozy nest for adventures far afield. Mary Ann Singleton finds love at sea with a forgetful stranger, Mona Ramsey discovers her doppelgänger in a desert whorehouse, and Michael Tolliver bumps into his favorite gynecologist in a Mexican bar. Meanwhile, their venerable landlady takes the biggest journey of all—without ever leaving home.

Quotes

  • “Remarkable…delectable, addictive.” 

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “As difficult to put down as a plate of pistachios. The reader starts playing the old childhood game of, ‘Just one more chapter, and I’ll turn out the light,’ only to look up and discover it’s after midnight.”

    - Los Angeles 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, superb dialogue, and what used to be called heart.”

    - Entertainment Weekly
  • “Romantic suspense abounds, and true love is always just around the corner. Cynthia Nixon plays delightful games with Maupin’s world, sometimes delivering a naïve, arch tone, other times suggesting a delicate naughtiness. With the awed tone of a storyteller, she encourages listeners to believe in these miraculous tales. Her voice ranges from sultry to sly to indignant as she delivers an impressively versatile performance…Maupin take listeners on a delightful trip.”
