It is 1985 and tranquility reigns in the ancient redwood forest until a women-only music festival sets up camp downriver from an all-male retreat of successful businessmen. Mayhem ensues and the characters readers came to love with Tales of the City are in the thick of it. Mary Ann Singleton is balancing a career and a marriage, while the friends she made on Barbary Street when she moved nine years ago from Ohio to San Francisco are facing their own difficult life developments. Significant Others is a cunningly observed meditation on marriage, friendship, and sexual nostalgia that could only come from Armistead Maupin.

Quotes & Awards

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

    The Guardian (London)

  • “Maupin writes with a warmth and humor that is sorely missed in some recent gay novels having more overtly literary aspirations; his tales may be sparkling entertainments, but they are lit with a glowing humanity that brings each character to vivid, poignant life.”

    Publishers Weekly
