Sure of You Paperback
Part of the Tales of the City series
In this, the sixth and final self-contained volume of Armistead Maupin's epic chronicle of modern life, a fiercely ambitious TV talk show host finds she must choose between national stardom in New York and a husband and child in San Francisco.
Wistful and compassionate yet subversively funny, "Sure of You" is a triumphant finale to one of the most addictively entertaining series of novels ever written.

Review by miketroll
Maupin’s Tales of the City series (this is No.6) set in San Francisco is easy to read, gently amusing, lightweight, often sentimental and saccharine. Probably a big influence on TV shows like Friends and Sex In The City. More recently, Alexander McCall Smith has successfully emulated Maupin's achievement of writing his novels in the 44 Scotland Street series as daily newspaper instalments (in The Scotsman).
