Tales of the City

Tales of the City  - Armistead Maupin I've never watched 'Sex In The City' or 'Ugly Betty', but I know enough about them to equate this book and the entire series to that vein. It's raunchy, gauche, loose, gay, crass even -- in every sense of the word, soap opera-ish! Oh, not to forget scandalous! But it's set in San Francisco in the 1970s (I'm not going to spell it out any clearer), so while I understand it's not everybody's cup of read, I enjoyed it.

* I'm on to Book 2: 'More Tales Of The City', and it gets better as more plot intricacies are revealed.
