The characters that filled the pages of the three earlier Tales of the City books with love and laughter are at it again, as an ordinary house-husband and his ambitious wife discover there's more to making a baby than meets the eye. Unexpected help arrives in the form of a British monarch, a grieving gay neighbour, and an international ring of mail-order brides. Armistead Maupin has written a comedy of manners for our times.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A consummate entertainer...It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly" * Times Literary Supplement *
"Maupin is a richly gifted comic author" * Observer *
"San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin" * Independent *
"Like those of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Armistead Maupin's novels have all appeared originally as serials...it is the strength of this approach, with its fantastic adventures and astonishingly contrived coincidences, that makes these novels charming and compelling" * Literary Review *
"May well be the funniest series of novels currently in progress... Maupin's ear for dialogue is as acute as his feeling for characterisation, and the net result is as engaging a read as you are likely to encounter in many moons" * The Times *

“Babycakes”

It's hard to judge these books individually, infact it's somewhat impossible. I have read this series many times over the last ten years and each time they have a different meaning, whether it's a new... More
