For more than 3 decades, Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City series has blazed its own trail through popular culture-from ground-breaking newspaper serial to classic novel. This is the first time it has appeared on radio, dramatised by Bryony Lavery.
Set in 1976 in San Francisco, Tales of the City is the second novel about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane; Tales is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that changed the way we live forever.
In this sequel to Tales of the City, Anna Madrigal reveals her secrets to her second family - the tenants of her house, 27 Barbary Lane. Mona Ramsey is on a cross-country trip that takes her to a brothel which may hold a secret about her past. Michael "Mouse" Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton go on a cruise where they meet up with lovers old and new. Brian Hawkins becomes involved with a mysterious woman he spots from his window, while DeDe Halcyon Day becomes acquainted with a new friend who helps her discover her true inner feelings.
