Michael Tolliver Lives by Armistead Maupin
Continuing with the story of 'Mouse' aka Michael Tolliver of Maupin's Tales of the City series which explored gay life in 1970's San Francisco. You may have seen the movie version on PBS with Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis.
Decades have passed and the remaining friends have survived the illness and changes of the previous quarter century. This is a stand alone book, but also serves as an exceptionally satisfying wrap-up revisiting well loved characters. All are growing older and faced with their own mortality and the fragility of those they love. This is an extraordinarily sweet, humorous and warm story about valuing family, friends and loving relationships in the gay community. "Generous in showing us the secrets of his heart," Armistead Maupin brings a humanity and affection to his characters that makes it a treat to once more share in the life of some of the former tenants of Barbary Lane.
