Free download 28 Barbary Lane The Tales of the City Omnibus ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Armistead Maupin Ï 5 Read Aspiring Mary Ann Singleton the libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey still in a sixties trance Michael Mouse Tolliver forever in bright eyed pursuit of Mr Right; and their marijuana growing landlady the indefatigable Mrs MadrigalHurdling barriers both social and sexual Maupin leads them through heartbreak and triumph through nail biting terrors and gleeful coincidences The result is a glittering and addictive comedy of manners that continues to beguile new generations of reader. My nostalgia for Armistead Maupin s Tales of the City series was stoked once again by the recent revival of the adaptation on Netflix On a reread of the first three books however a few flaws become apparentThe initial entry in the series is fun and feels pleasurably voyeuristic on the hijinx of the down and out and rich and famous both but Tales of the City is honestly not as well written as later installments Maupin relies heavily on chunks of dialogue without much exposition or inner reflection the character development is thin More Tales is fleshed out to a fuller extent but so much of the action takes place either on Mary Ann and Michael s cruise or Mona s adventures in Winnemucca that it hardly feels like it s of the City at all It s not really until Further Tales that the series comes into focus and Maupin seems to grasp his authorial strengthsAs a lifelong Dickens fan I m totally willing to accept Maupin s often outrageous coincidences that cause his characters to cross paths What I find less comfortable though is how Maupin divides his gay characters in these first three books into two broad camps the good gays and bad gays The bad gays are uniformly effeminate they mince about and use campy language address each other with effete pronouns such as she listen to ABBA and make double entendres worthy of Are You Being Served s Mr Humphries Maupin s A List Gays whom he dismisses entirely and other ineffectual minor players are thus uniformly characterized The author s pets though are unswervingly masculine and straight acting and if they happen to do anything outrageous such as enter an underwear contest at least they have the decency to regret it for several volumesAdmittedly decades have passed since these novels were initially released and the LGBT population s policing of others mannerisms has been increasingly left in the past as have outdated nonchalance about child pornographers and casual institutionalized sexism While parts of the first Tales trilogy may seem like relics from a time capsule at least Maupin s primary characters are mostly as fresh and endearing as they were forty years ago Cut the Clutter years ago
