“An enormously talented writer. . . . By writing about what’s seemingly different, Armistead Maupin always manages to capture what’s so hilariously, painfully true for all of us.” —Amy Tan, author of The Bonesetter’s Daughter
“Maupin writes with warmth, acuity and tremendous wit. . . . Read him.” —Publishers Weekly
Following the success of his New York Times bestseller Michael Tolliver Lives, Armistead Maupin’s Mary Ann in Autumn is a touching portrait of friendship, family, and fresh starts, as the City by the Bay welcomes back Mary Ann Singleton, the beloved Tales of the City heroine who started it all. A new chapter begins in the lives of both Mary Ann and Michael “Mouse” Tolliver when she returns to San Francisco to rejoin her oldest friend after years in New York City…the reunion that fans of Maupin’s beloved Tales of the City series have been awaiting for years.

Like catching up with old friends
One of those few stories you hate to reach the end of.
May Ann in Autumn
I always feel sad, yet fulfilled, when I finish one of Mr. Maupin's books. They have been with me throughout life's journeys. When is the next one? Anna perhaps?
Mary Ann in Autumn
He's done it again. No matter how many years it's been since reading the originals, he brings you back to this amazing family as if you never left them.
You love them again. Grow with them. Cry with them. It makes aging in San Francisco, as I have all the more fun.
I wish he could write a book every week.
Thank you, Armisted, for this. You remind me why I continue to live in San Francisco and make my own memories.
