I am very excited and looking forward to Armistead Maupin's new release sometime in June. Are there other Armistead readers out there?|
I have only read The Night Listener, but loved it.
I have read his Tales of the City series, all three of them at least a couple of times. They are SO good. And the mini series they did for them turned out very well.
I devoured all of these books in the 1990s, so I'll be among the first in line for the new one. Thanks for keeping us informed!
Not a problem. Glad to hear from other avid Armistead fans! This one should be a good one too. Quick synopsis: "Mouse" is in his 50s with HIV.
I did a little [[squee! dance]] when I heard that he was releasing another "Tales" book -- granted, he's making a big point of it *NOT* being "...another Tales book..." but it is...shut up! It IS! [[cries]]
Yeah. I read all of 'em on the bus going to and from school and work in the 80's and early 90's... They rock. :o)
I am really looking forward to this book. PLUS I heard there will be some characters from Tales that will be in this book. It's hard not to call it another Tales book.
I'm tottally with you on that point, that's for sure... If it's "set in the same 'world' as ____" it's a "____ book", face it... ;o) It's like J.K.Rowling releasing a new series of books focussing on Ginny Weasley and getting upset when people call 'em "The new Harry Potter books"... [/book-nerd] ;o)
I know I'm coming in on this a bit late, but I got Michael Tolliver Lives a few weeks ago and read it in about two days. Makes me want to go back and read all the 'Tales' books.
I loved them all so much and had a big crush on Michael. I literally had a tingle run down my spine when I picked it up in the book store.
I found myself laughing out loud and choking up in parts of the book. I get a bit sentimental about it, I guess.
If you like Tales, I definitely recommend it.
No worries. I STILL need to pick this book up! I have SO much summer reading this year; which is great. I would rather be reading versus sitting in front of my laptop or watching TV.
It sounds like realyl enjoyed the book. I read the whole series again about a year ago. I cannot get enough of it. Looking forward to reading this book.
I was lucky enough to read this while on holiday in San Francisco earlier on this year - that was quite a big deal for a Brit who has read all the others in the series too, it seemed to come alive even more there. I really enjoyed it but they are such easy reads it was over way too soon. Definitely one to revisit in the future...
Hope you like it too.
I am sure this one is another great Armistead book. I have so many others I am trying to read. I need to stop buying books and get going! LOL
