28 Barbary Lane The Tales of the City Omnibus free read » 0 Armistead Maupin's uproarious and moving Tales of the City novels the first three of which are collected in this omnibus volume have earned a uniue niche in American literature and are considered indelible documents of cultural change from the seventies through the first two decades of the new millennium“These novels are as difficult to put down as a dish of pistachios The reader starts playing the old childhood game of 'Just one chapter and I'll turn out the lights' only to lo.

28 Barbary Lane The Tales of the City Omnibus free read » 0 Aspiring Mary Ann Singleton the libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey still in a sixties trance Michael Mouse Tolliver forever in bright eyed pursuit of Mr Right; and their marijuana growing landlady the indefatigable Mrs MadrigalHurdling barriers both social and sexual Maupin leads them through heartbreak and triumph through nail biting terrors and gleeful coincidences The result is a glittering and addictive comedy of manners that continues to beguile new generations of reader. Total soap opera but in the best kind of way Fans of the PBS miniseries or the new Netflix limited series will find the first three volumes of the whole Tales of the City saga pretty much do exactly what it says on the tin Every plot is intertwined there s always some kind of gasp worthy heel turn He s really a PI Cults Jim Jones everyone finds themselves in and out of some larger plot twist Maupin is a breezy writer making even a 1000 page book go remarkably uickly At the core the reason for getting into these stories and getting invested in these characters is because he s so good at illustrating the concept of chosen family that is so essential to ueer life We feel it when Mrs Madrigal facing a potentially life ending event responds to the suggestion that somehow she ll be okay with Of course I will be I m with my family aren t I referencing people she essentially barely knows With a few small exceptions every character relates far better to their Barbary Lane neighbors than they do their biological relatives They ve all come to this exotic place called San Francisco where no one is actually from but everyone ends up if they re the right kind of person and in doing so build a fantasy version of their livesThat fantasy is actually why you want to keep reading Though Tales of the City is technically realism the San Francisco it is set in is of a fairy tale country than a place that ever really existed and not just because the bulk of the action in the first three novels all takes place entirely before the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic It s charming full of rogues and characters and kindly welcoming landladies who draw you out of your shell with her marijuana garden and her caftans all the while only charging you a couple of hundred bucks per month for your one bedroom apartment It s a San Francisco that you want to move to far removed from the current version or even the version that existed at the time Add to it the utterly charming and slightly unbelievable characters that make up the world and reading it can feel like a nice warm bath
