Reviews

A Good Housekeeping "Book We're Most Looking Forward To" --

"Maupin is a peerless visionary who created a queer community of friends decades ago and is still at the top of his game with this funny, endearing, and totally captivating literary escapade.... Fifty years in, the 'Tales of the City' series continues, and this novel is as charming, witty, and magical as its predecessors." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Pure Maupin. The fans rejoice." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Catnip for Maupin fans" -- Booklist

"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?" -- Salon

"A cultural touchstone ... Seen at last in its entirety, 'Tales of the City' remains an immensely readable accomplishment that wears its significance lightly.... Entertains, illuminates and ― as always ― leaves us wanting more." -- Washington Post

"These novels are as difficult to put down as a dish of pistachios. The reader starts playing the old childhood game of 'Just one more chapter and I'll turn out the lights, ' only to look up and discover it's after midnight." -- Los Angeles Review of Books

"Seriously moving... [Many decades] into the series, Maupin's writing remains wildly addictive but is deeper and richer." -- People

"An enormously talented writer... Armistead Maupin always manages to capture what's so hilariously painfully true for all of us." -- Amy Tan

"A consummate entertainer who has made a generation laugh.... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly." -- Edmund White, Times Literary Supplement
