"A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly" (Edmund White The 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)
The first volume in the widely acclaimed and much-loved seriesSee all Product description

I didn't really warm to her, finding her to be a bit insipid and her back story poorly detailed. However, it's possible Maupin intended her to be the pivot around which everyone else's lives revolve - and they are indeed much more colourful!
I found it hard to relate to some of the events in the book, neither having lived through flowerpower or ever having been to San Fran. However, I loved it for its warmth, gritty humour, twists and turns and frankness and I'm sure you will too.
In my view a 'successful' first book in a series inspires you to rush out and buy the next. It didn't happen for me. However it's one of those books which you are glad to say that you've read!
