Tales of the City

Armistead Maupin

A naive young secretary, fresh out of Cleveland, tumbles headlong into a brave new world of laundromat Lotharios, pot-growing landladies, cut throat debutantes, and Jockey Shorts dance contests. The saga that ensues is manic, romantic, tawdry, touching, and outrageous.

The riotous beginning of a manic, colourful, Dickensian chronicle of San Francisco in the 1970s, Tales of the City introduces a headspinning cast of characters you’ll want to keep up with for the next eight books.

I love this book, a wonderful, wandering tale where the city is as much of a character as the people within it.
