The first of nine novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that changed forever the way we live.

Quotes & Awards

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

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A consummate entertainer who has made a generation
    laugh…It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love

    Times Literary Supplement

  • “A good serial writer can make even a big city feel like a small town…The only downside is that the stories end, and the reader, who has come to enjoy Maupin's crew more than one's own much less colorful friends, is left with a far duller social life.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “With the pleasure he seems to take in performing these stories, it's evident that these rich characters are truly a part of Maupin. His effortless enthusiasm runs throughout the anthology, making it not only a joy for listeners on a mere storytelling level, but also an accessible chronicle of American life in the 1970s and 1980s.”
