Since 1976, Maupin's Tales of the City
has etched itself upon the hearts and minds of its readers, both straight and gay. From a groundbreaking newspaper serial in the San Francisco Chronicle
to a bestselling novel to a critically acclaimed PBS series, Tales
(all six of them) contains the universe--if not in a grain of sand, then in one apartment house.
"A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly" -- Edmund White The Times Literary Supplement "Maupin is a richly gifted comic author" Observer "San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin" Independent "Like those of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Armistead Maupin's novels have all appeared originally as serials... it is the strength of this approach, with its fantastic adventures and astonishingly contrived coincidences, that makes these novels charming and compelling" Literary Review
