The first novel in the beloved Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin’s best-selling San Francisco saga.
For almost four decades Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City has blazed its own trail through popular culture—from a groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a television event that entranced millions around the world. The first of nine novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that changed forever the way we live.

    The typical Tales fan is simply someone who revels in the act of being oneself—whatever that might be—and of letting others do the same.
