For more than three decades, Armistead Maupin’s Tales
of the City has blazed its own trail through popular culture, from a
groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a television event that
entranced millions around the world.
The first of six novels in the series, Tales of the City begins with Mary Ann Singleton, a naïve young
woman from Cleveland, Ohio, who, seeking a change in her life, moves to San
Francisco. The year is 1976 and Mary Ann finds herself living at 28 Barbary
Lane, where her life quickly becomes intertwined with those of her varied
neighbors and myriad colorful characters. Tales
is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that
forever changed the way we live.
