Inspiration for the Netflix Limited Series, Tales of the City

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick

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.

      • content:

        January 3, 1994
        Maupin's alternately playful and sentimental tales depict an all-too-easily satirized population of transients and toffs living in and around San Francisco.
