Description

Inspiration for the Netflix Limited Series, Tales of the City

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick

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

For almost four 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 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.

Description
All six Tales of the City novels available in one audio edition with a special introduction by the author Armistead Maupin's uproarious and moving Tales of the City novels have earned a unique niche in American literature; not only as matchless entertainment, but as indelible documents of cultural change in the seventies and eighties Among the cast of this groundbreaking 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. "Maupin, with all his elegance and charm, has found a place among the classics." -The Observer Includes: Tales of the City More Tales of the City Further Tales of the City Babycakes Significant Others Sure of You
