As regular readers may have already picked up on, I'm a bit partial to the Tales Of The City series of novels by Armistead Maupin, which follows the weird and wonderful adventures of Mary Ann Singleton, Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, Mrs Anna Madrigal, Mona Ramsay, Brian Hawkins and various other friends and acquaintances of the 28 Barbary Lane household from late 1970s San Francisco. Not surprisingly, therefore, I added the latest instalment to my reading list (as mentioned here) as soon as I got wind of it over the summer.
How pleased was I, then, to have the opportunity, first, to review Mary Ann In Autumn for Peter Wild's brilliant Bookmunch and, second, to attend Armistead Maupin's book launch last week at Waterstone's Deansgate; a sold-out event, complete with reading and Q&A session, which I have now reviewed for the fabulously entitled For Books' Sake.
You can have a shufty at the Bookmunch review here, and the For Books' Sake review here. Thank you for reading.
