'A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly' - Edmund White, The Times Literary Supplement

San Francisco, 1976.

A naive young secretary, fresh out of Cleveland, tumbles headlong into a brave new world of laundromat Lotharios, pot-growing landladies, cut throat debutantes, and Jockey Shorts dance contests.

The saga that ensues is manic, romantic, tawdry, touching, and outrageous - unmistakably the handwork of Armistead Maupin.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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

'A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly' - Edmund White, The Times Literary Supplement
