      • premium: True
      • source: Publisher's Weekly
      • 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.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: For years Maupin's witty novels about the residents of San Francisco's Barbary Lane have thrilled readers. This audiobook collection takes the thrill a step further. All six tales are here in collectible form, with a heartfelt special introduction by Maupin himself. With the pleasure he seems to take in performing these stories, it's evident that these rich characters are truly a part of Maupin. His effortless enthusiasm runs throughout the anthology, making it not only a joy for listeners on a mere storytelling level, but also an accessible chronicle of American life in the 1970s and 1980s.
