TALES OF THE CITY

For more than three 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 six 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.

“There’s been nothing like it since the heyday of the serial novel a hundred years ago.”  - Village Voice Literary Supplement

“Perhaps the most sublime piece of popular literature America has ever produced
…As with the Beatles, everyone seems to like Maupin’s Tales—and, really, why would you want to find someone who didn’t?”

                       - Laura Miller, The Salon.com Reader’s Guide to Contemporary Authors

“Mr. Maupin invented San Francisco.”  - Quentin Crisp
