Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City has blazed a singular trail through popular culture, from a groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a television event that entranced millions around the world. The first of six novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a wry comedy of manners and a deeply involving portrait of a vanished era.
Among the cast of this groundbreaking saga are the lovelorn residents of 28 Barbary Lane: the bewildered but 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. Madrigal.

I read the Tales years ago and enjoyed them immensely. This abriged recorded version - while still good AND read by the author - is not as enjoyable as the books because it is exactly the small indiosyncratic episodes (that here sometimes got cut out)!! which made this a great read.

For someone unfamiliar with the Tales, it might be difficult, at times, to follow the storyline.

In essence, this recorded books is for people who want to know whether they would like the book, or those like me who've read the books and just want to revisited with the folks at 28 Barbary Lane.
