Part of the Tales of the City series

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Twenty years have passed since Mary Ann Singleton left her husband and child in San Francisco to pursue her dream of a television career in New York.

Now, a pair of personal calamities has driven her back to the city of her youth and into the arms of her oldest friend, Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, a gay gardener happily ensconced with his much-younger husband.

Mary Ann finds temporary refuge in the couple's backyard cottage, where, at the unnerving age of fifty-seven, she licks her wounds and takes stock of her mistakes.

Soon, with the help of Facebook and a few old friends, she begins to re-engage with life, only to confront fresh terrors when her speckled past comes back to haunt her in a way she could never have imagined.

Over three decades in the making, Armistead Maupin's legendary "Tales of the City" series rolls into a new age, still sassy, irreverent and curious, and still exploring the boundaries of the human experience with insight, compassion and mordant wit.

More of the same (this is the 8th Tales of the City story) and wonderful it is too!Start at the beginning, not with this one, but those of use who have read so far, it was a beautifully crafted, if predictable, story.
