Like its companion volume, "28 Barbary Lane, Back to Barbary Lane" is distinguished by what "The Guardian" of London has called "some of the sharpest and most speakable dialogue you are ever likely to read." It promises hours of literate entertainment for readers old and new.
"Back to Barbary Lane" comprises the second trilogy of the series-- "Babycakes" (1984), "Significant Others" (1987), and "Sure of You" (1989) --concluding the saga of the tenants, past and present, of Mrs. Madrigal's beloved apartment house on Russian Hill. While the first trilogy celebrated the carefree excesses of the seventies, this volume tracks its hapless, all-to-human cast across a decade troubled by plague, deceit and overweening ambition.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Armistead Maupin's bestselling "Tales of the City" series stands as an incomparable blend of great storytelling and incisive social commentary. These six classic comedies, some of which originally appeared as serials in San Francisco newspapers, have won Maupin critical acclaim around the world and enthralled legions of devoted fans.
