Soon to be a Netflix series starring Ellen Page and Laura Linney . . .

Sassy, irreverent and curious, Maupin continues to explore the boundaries of the human experience with insight, compassion and mordant wit.
__________________

Twenty years have passed since Mary Ann Singleton left her husband and child in San Francisco to pursue her dream of a television career in New York.

Now, a pair of personal calamities has driven her back to the city of her youth and into the arms of her oldest friend, Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, a gay gardener happily ensconced with his much-younger husband.

Mary Ann finds temporary refuge in the couple's backyard cottage, where, at the unnerving age of fifty-seven, she licks her wounds and takes stock of her mistakes.

Soon, with the help of Facebook and a few old friends, she begins to re-engage with life, only to confront fresh terrors when her speckled past comes back to haunt her in a way she could never have imagined.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Old friends, good times and a powerful conclusion: Maupin feels the love and shares it with his readers * Financial Times *
The cultural references are still fresh... The characters still compelling * Independent on Sunday *
The kind of writer who doesn't have readers so much as devotees... Maupin at his rapturous best * Guardian *
Like slipping into a warm, scented bath. Maupin's back, with an eighth instalment of his lovely Tales of the City series... Lie back and enjoy * The Times *
Those who loved the last book will rejoice in the fact that Maupin hasn't finished with these much-loved characters yet. More please * Time Out *

“Back in the city”

I've just finished Mary Ann in Autumn. Brilliant almost like a homecoming to Barbary Lane. Glad Mary Ann is no longer the bad guy & I'm glad she's back.
