About the Author

Armistead Maupin was born in Washington, D.C. in 1944 but was brought up in Raleigh, North Carolina. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he served as a naval officer in Vietnam before moving to California in 1971 as a reporter for the Associated Press. In 1976 he launched his daily newspaper serial, Tales of the City, in the San Francisco Chronicle. The first fiction to appear in an American daily for decades, Tales grew into an international sensation when compiled and rewritten as novels. Maupin's six-volume Tales of the City sequence - Tales of the City, More Tales of the City, Further Tales of the City, Babycakes, Significant Others and Sure of You - are now multi-million bestsellers published around the world. He is also the author of two other bestselling novels, Maybe the Moon and The Night Listener, which was recently made into a film starring Robin Williams and Toni Collette. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Reviews

The twentysomethings who romped through the Seventies in Maupin's Tales of the City (Audio Reviews, LJ 3/1/95) are now 30 and still living in Mrs. Madrigal's home in San Francisco. Mary Anne has broken into broadcasting at the very ground floor, Michael is still looking for Mr. Right, and Brian continues to tend bar even though he has a law degree. The trio encounter colorful characters‘famous actors, a gossip columnist, and a Jonestown escapee among them‘whose exploits intertwine in an outrageous yet just-this-side-of-believable series of adventures. Maupin's descriptions and dialog capture the early 1980s with witty authenticity while reader Barbara Rosenblat's uncanny ability brings the large and diverse cast alive. Maupin is a master storyteller who knows how to keep listeners intrigued with his clever twists, unforgettable characters, and delicious cliffhangers. Fans of his first two Tales will not be disappointed, while newcomers will not have to read the earlier works to appreciate this irreverent glimpse at the Eighties. For popular collections.‘Susan McCaffrey, Legg Middle Sch. Lib., Coldwater, Mich.

"Like those of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Armistead Maupin's novels have all appeared originally as serials... it is the strength of this approach, with its fantastic adventures and astonishingly contrived coincidences, that make these novels charming and compelling" * Literary Review *
"An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco" * The New York Times Book Review *
"A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly" * The Times Literary Supplement *
"Maupin is a richly gifted comic author" * Observer *
"San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin" * Independent *
