From trailblazing newspaper serial to bestselling series of novels to acclaimed PBS series, Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City is celebrated as an “extended love letter to a magical San Francisco” (New York Times Book Review). The series chronicles the ongoing lives, loves, and quirks of the denizens of a Bay Area apartment building. At times both sentimental and “cheerfully raunchy” (Miami Herald), Maupin’s work has also portrayed thinly veiled versions of real-life people and events, and were some of the first books to address the AIDS epidemic. Maupin is also the author of the novels Maybe the Moon and The Night Listener. The ninth and final novel in the Tales of the City saga follows the comic and touching titular character of Anna Madrigal, the elderly transgendered landlady of 28 Barbary Lane, as she considers her mortality and attempts to reconcile the past.
