Armistead Maupin’s Mary Ann in Autumn–the latest Tales of the City installment–is available in paperback today.

As queer readers will recall, I loved this book. I was particularly impressed by how Mr. Maupin managed to pull together a reunion of the (surviving) characters in a way that feels natural and organic. San Francisco isn’t the same today as it was in the seventies and eighties and neither are these characters.They are older and in some cases wiser. But the joy for this queer reader is the realization that they are alive and (for the most part) well.

This is my favorite Tales of the City book because, quite simply, it is the most poignant. I strongly recommend this book.

Armistead Maupin’s Mary Ann in Autumn is published by┬áHarper Perennial.
