Book 7, Tales of the City
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The seventh novel in the beloved Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin’s best-selling San Francisco saga, soon to return to television as a Netflix original series once again starring Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis.
Nearly two decades after ending his groundbreaking Tales of the City saga of San Francisco life, Armistead Maupin revisits his all-too-human hero Michael Tolliver—the fifty-five-year-old sweet-spirited gardener and survivor of the plague that took so many of his friends and lovers—for a single day at once mundane and extraordinary... and filled with the everyday miracles of living.

Don't Judge By Cover
Surely the publisher could have used the original artwork for the cover rather than the tattered, taped scan that this iBook has! It's abysmal to say the least. I wasn't aware that my money was going to shoddy work.
The story itself is good, although surprisingly and unexpectedly written in the first person. I understand that the books following went back to the third person narrative which I personally prefer. Still, this book should keep anyone entertained although one must be aware that it is more sexually graphic than the earlier books. It didn't bother me but it may offend some.
Like Coming Home
How I have missed these old friends? I don't know why it took me so long to read this after it was released, perhaps I needed to be in the right frame of mind. A recent trip to San Francisco reminded me of them, and I just finished reading Michael Tolliver lives on a beautiful early fall day in DC. If you loved the series, this is a must read, if for no other reason than to revisit old friends once again.
Good, easy read
Great characters, a fun read. Buy it, you'll enjoy every sentence.
