I remember the first time I read Further Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. I was in my twenties, young and foolish, and just coming out of my closet. I didn’t know any people like the characters in the book, but I really wanted to know them. When I made the decision to read the book again, I felt the same way. I wish I could reach back through time and space and get to know everyone at Barbary Lane again. Thanks to this book, I can and I did.
I’m off to start the next book in the series, Babycakes.
