Maupin has this amazing way to bring story lines back from the first few books that the reader had all but forgotten.
It reads fast, like a good Tales of the City book should, and when you are done you are , like me, going to want to just turn back to page one and start again.
Maybe that's something to be developed in the next book, but it felt a little too stilted and forced, even by Maupin standards.
Unlike 'Michael Tolliver Lives' this sequel bears more resemblance to the original format of the early Tales of the City stories. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Simon Temprell

Loved reconnecting with the characters. Mr. Maupin never disappoints. Great how he closes the loop on some old storylines. Can't wait to read the next book!Published 3 months ago by JTHSF
Armistead Maupin is my favorite writer, bar none. Bringing Mary Ann back to San Francisco is like welcoming an old friend back home. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Dennis E. Miller
