Back on form, 3 Oct 2011
The "Tales of the City" are one of those series of books which seem to follow you through life - sounds a bit corney but it's true. I was introduced to them way over twenty years ago by a friend at Uni and for me as a young gay man at the time they reached out to me. I've read them all about three times over the years - they hold lots of memories.
When "Michael Tolliver Lives" was published I was massively disappointed - none of it worked and so I approached the prospect of yet another "Tales" novel with trepidation. I needn't have worried. This is a return to form.
I loved all of it. I don't want to give anything away to anyone who hasn't read it but the link with the very first novel is very clever and slightly eerie.
I actually guessed some of it but even so I would recommend this novel without reservation. One of my Books of 2011.
