The first novel in the beloved Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin’s best-selling San Francisco saga, soon to return to television as a Netflix original series once again starring Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis.
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.

    Have already read the first few of this series and love the characters. Not sure about the narration, it seemed lackluster to me.

  • Rose Prevost

    There was nothing going on to keep me going. I think this a rare case where the tv mini series is probably better than reading the book. Although I have not seen it.
