Tales of the City (Tales of the City, Book 1)

Armistead Maupin

The first novel in the beloved Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin's best-selling San Francisco saga, is an uproariously moving novel and an indelible portrait of cultural change from the seventies.

Originally serialised in the San Francisco Chronicle in the 1970s, Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City afforded a mainstream audience of millions its first exposure to straight and gay characters experiencing on equal terms the follies of urban life.

Among the cast of this ground-breaking saga are the lovelorn residents of 28 Barbary Lane- the bewildered but aspiring Mary Ann Singleton, the libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey, still in a sixties trance, Michael 'Mouse' Tolliver, forever in bright-eyed pursuit of Mr. Right; and their marijuana-growing landlady, the indefatigable Mrs. Madrigal.

Hurdling barriers both social and sexual, Maupin leads them through heartbreak and triumph, through nail-biting terrors and gleeful coincidences. The result is a glittering and addictive comedy of manners that continues to beguile new generations of readers.
