9780062196248: The Days of Anna Madrigal (Tales of the City)

The Days of Anna Madrigal, the suspenseful, comic, and touching ninth novel in Armistead Maupin's bestselling "Tales of the City" series, follows one of modern literature's most unforgettable and enduring characters - Anna Madrigal, the legendary transgender landlady of 28 Barbary Lane - as she embarks on a road trip that will take her deep into her past. Now ninety-two, and committed to the notion of "leaving like a lady," Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her "logical family" in San Francisco: her devoted young caretaker Jake Greenleaf; her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his daughter Shawna; and Michael Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton, who have known and loved Anna for nearly four decades. Some members of Anna's family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevada's Black Rock Desert where 60,000 revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week. Anna herself has another destination in mind: a lonely stretch of road outside of Winnemucca where the 16-year-old boy she once was ran away from the whorehouse he called home. With Brian and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.

Review:

"One of the most acclaimed sagas of our time...A celebration of life in all its craziness...As good as anything Maupin has offered us" -- John Sutherland The Times "The brilliance of Maupin is his mingling of high camp with tragedy and deep feeling - all with a miraculously light touch" -- Daily Mail Wendy Holden "A proper Maupin-esque swansong - moving, funny and obscene. We expect nothing less" -- Isabel Berwick Financial Times "Christopher Isherwood was absolutely correct when he declared Maupin to be the Dickens of the modern world" -- Chuck Palahniuk

Book Description:
