More Tales of the City
PortraitArmistead Maupin was born in Washington, D.C. in 1944 but was brought up in Raleigh, North Carolina. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he served as a naval officer in Vietnam before moving to California in 1971 as a reporter for the Associated Press. In 1976 he launched his daily newspaper serial, Tales of the City, in the San Francisco Chronicle. The first fiction to appear in an American daily for decades, Tales grew into an international sensation when compiled and rewritten as novels. Maupin's six-volume Tales of the City sequence - Tales of the City, More Tales of the City, Further Tales of the City, Babycakes, Significant Others and Sure of You - are now multi-million bestsellers published around the world. He is also the author of two other bestselling novels, Maybe the Moon and The Night Listener, which was recently made into a film starring Robin Williams and Toni Collette. He lives in San Francisco, California. Official Author Web Site: www.ArmisteadMaupin.com
Pressestimmen"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 "San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin" Independent "Maupin is a richly gifted comic author" Observer "A consummate entertainer... It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly" Times Literary Supplement "I have read Maupin's first two books three times already and shall probably read them again before too long. I love them for very much the same qualities that make me love the novels of Dickens" -- Christopher Isherwood
