MICHAEL TOLLIVER LIVES

Nearly two decades after ending his groundbreaking Tales of the City saga, Maupin revisits one his most beloved characters, Michael “Mouse” Tolliver, and lets the fifty-five-year-old gardener tell his story of survival in his own words. Along the way, the reader reunites with a number of familiar faces from the old days at 28 Barbary Lane.

“Michael Tolliver Lives is nostalgia at its sweetest, and yet manages to be as current and even, yes, as occasionally shocking as his original Tales of the City…[Maupin] presents it all with a wit, compassion and confidence undiminished by time.”
                                                                                                                                        - BookPage

“Maupin [displays] in great furls of prose both his instinct for comedy and his linguistic verve…The book is great fun to read.”   
                                                                   - David Leavitt, New York Times Book Review

“Anyone who enjoyed those earlier books will welcome the opportunity for a return trip to its setting…a reunion long overdue”   - Janet Maslin, New York Times
