Mary Ann in Autumn

by Armistead Maupin
£8.99   paperback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2011)

Mary Ann in Autumn by Armistead Maupin Twenty years have passed since Mary Ann Singleton left her husband and child in San Francisco to pursue her dream of a television career in New York. Now a pair of personal calamities has driven her back to the city of her youth and into the arms of her oldest friend, Michael ďMouseĒ Tolliver, a gay gardener happily ensconced with his much-younger husband.

Mary Ann finds temporary refuge in the coupleís backyard cottage, where, at the unnerving age of 57, she licks her wounds and takes stock of her mistakes. Soon, with the help of Facebook and a few old friends, she begins to reengage with life, only to confront fresh terrors when her speckled past comes back to haunt her in a way she could never have imagined.

Among those caught in Mary Annís orbit are her estranged daughter, Shawna, a popular sex blogger; Jake Greenleaf, Michaelís transgendered gardening assistant; socialite DeDe Halcyon-Wilson; and the indefatigable Anna Madrigal, Mary Annís former landlady at 28 Barbary Lane.

Over three decades in the making, Armistead Maupinís legendary Tales of the City series rolls into a new age, still sassy, irreverent and curious, and still exploring the boundaries of the human experience with insight, compassion and mordant wit.
