Born in the mid-twentieth century and raised in the heart of conservative North Carolina, Armistead Maupin lost his virginity to another man "on the very spot where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.

Frannie was thrilled to see her. Pull up a chair, she smiled, laying down her Danielle Steel novel. I haven’t talked to a grown-up in ages. Claire mugged amiably. Who you callin’ a grown-up?. Who you callin’ a grown-up? ou’ll do, said Frannie. Claire lowered her formidable frame into an aluminum deck chair and sighed dramatically. So where are the little darlings?. Frannie shushed her with a forefinger to the lips. Don’t even mention it, Claire. It’s almost too good to be true. Frannie made a sweeping gesture with her arm. This.

Set in San Francisco and comprised of a hundred or so very short chapters, Armistad Maupin creates an ensemble of interesting characters trying to find themselves a half-decade after the Summer of Love but a lifetime before AIDS, cellphones, the internet or Donald Trump.

This was the perfect book for me to read after the emotionally draining experience of “A Little Life.” Breezy, but poignant. The book is a time capsule of the 70s and it shows how much things have changed and how little.

THIS REVIEW ADDRESSES ERRORS IN THE BOOK, NOT THE BOOK CONTENT. OTHERS HAVE COMPLAINED OF THE SAME THING, BUT I WANTED TO ADD MY OPINION.
Many words in this book have been "replaced" by auto-correction with incorrect words. It is distracting and irritating, there are so many!! For example, a chapter should be called "Mittelschmerz" -- it was replaced by ETHELMERTZ. She is a character from the old I Love Lucy show!! Ridiculous!! This is just one example of many in the book. I imagine the problem lies with the publisher. I haven't had this problem with other Kindle books, some from the same publisher. With the prices of the Kindle books being about the same as a physical book, this is unacceptable. This makes Amazon look bad. This is the 4th book in a series of 9. I planned to read them all, but am afraid that some of them will be like this one. It is very difficult to enjoy the book with so many errors.

Amazon outsourcing customer service is not working well, in my case. I was told to re-download the book, and of course it is the same. I was promised a $5.00 credit as a gesture of "good will." I have not received that credit. This is my worst experience with Amazon. It is probably a publishing mistake, but to sell the Kindle books at physical book price and have these errors is UNACCEPTABLE.
I bet the author would not take kindly to having his words mangled!!! I may write him about it. At this point I want my money back.

Fantastic book if you know San Francisco and want to look at a period of time when the clouds of 68 and Vietnam had subsided and the fear of the AIDS plague had not yet come. Helped me appreciate my city that much more.

I first became aware of Maupin's "Tales of the City" a little while ago while reading a book review in the Wall Street Journal. I added it to a list of books that I'd like to find and read some day. The review must have intrigued me, because when I saw it on Amazon the title caught my eye. I read the reviews and decided it would be a good purchase.

Clearly it was, since this is the 2nd book in the series. It's very hard to put this book into categories. It's definitely fiction.

Maupin's people in this world (San Francisco in, if I remember correctly, the 1970's? Late '70s?) weave throughout their own plotlines and those of the other characters in the book. The core group live in an unusual boarding house, run by an eccentric woman "of a certain age," who takes her boarders into her "family." Naturally, these family members also have family and friends (and other types of associates) from their lives outside of the house. Sometimes some of them move in (with or without an established boarder) or out, depending upon the circumstances of their unique and quite interesting lives.

San Francisco has long been known as a haven for eccentrics, artists, people of various sexual identities and old, wealthy society. Maupin's characters travel across these societal, sexual, gender and career lines freely and often. There are frightening villains, but they always receive their comeuppance in appropriate (sometimes humorous, sometimes graphic) ways.

I strongly recommend you give this book a try. My description of Maupin's writing style is sadly deficient. Let's just say it's a sort of New Age soap opera, romance, social commentary and comedy wrapped up in several continuing delicious packages.

I enjoyed the continuing stories of Mary Ann, Brian, and Michael, especially the British sojourn. I started reading the Tales books several decades ago, but never made it past Book 3. Recently decided to reread those three and then follow through with the rest. Returning to Barbary Lane was like coming home in a way, revisiting all these characters, their lives, hopes, and dreams in the very particular place and time of San Francisco. The only problem with this Kindle edition is the ridiculous number of typos throughout. I'll be happy to edit it if someone from Kindle contacts me.

I have loved this book, and series, for decades. I take them out every few years and read them and it's like reuniting with old friends. And, like old friends, they make both good and bad choices and you still love them dearly.
I read Tales of the City just a few weeks ago and was hooked!!! I immediately bought More Tales and couldn't put it down. I love Armistead Maupin's writing and these books. I lived in the Bay Area and for a while in San Francisco in the 60's, so I can relate to his books, the City and the people. I still do not know how I could have possibly missed these books when they first came out. The only thing I can think is that I was raising two little sons, working full time, and was leading an extremely busy and full life and perhaps didn't have the time to take on a new author and a new series. I have now bought all of the books except the very last about Anna Madrigal. When I finish the first eight, I will buy that one. Thank you Mr. Maupin.
