San Francisco, 1976. A naïve young secretary, fresh out of Cleveland, tumbles headlong into a brave new world of laundromat Lotharios, pot-growing landladies, cut throat debutantes, and Jockey Shorts dance contests. The saga that ensues is manic, romantic, tawdry, touching, and outrageous - unmistakably the handiwork of Armistead Maupin.

"Maupin is a richly gifted comic author" ( Observer)
"San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin" ( Independent)
