Satyrsphere Book Club Official Selection: Tales of the City
Get out your reading glasses and sexy smoking jackets as were gonna read Armistead Maupin's classic: Tales of the City
Seeking a change in her life, Mary Ann Singleton moves to San Francisco in 1976, soon finding herself living at 28 Barbary Lane. Her life becomes intertwined with those of her varied neighbors and myriad colorful characters.
The novel is a look at San Francisco in the 1970s, exploring "alternative lifestyles" and "underground" culture.
Since 1976, Maupin's Tales of the City has etched itself upon the hearts and minds of its readers, both straight and gay. From a groundbreaking newspaper serial in the San Francisco Chronicle to a bestselling novel to a critically acclaimed PBS series, Tales (all six of them) contains the universe--if not in a grain of sand, then in one apartment house.
