Summary

All six Tales of the City novels available in one audio edition with a special introduction by the author.
Armistead Maupin's uproarious and moving Tales of the City novels have earned a unique niche in American literature, not only as matchless entertainment but as indelible documents of cultural change in the '70s and '80s.
Among the cast of this groundbreaking saga are the lovelorn residents of 28 Barbary Lane: the bewildered but aspiring Mary Ann Singleton; the libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey, still in a'60s trance; Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, forever in bright-eyed pursuit of Mr. Right; and their marijuana-growing landlady, the indefatigable Mrs. Madrigal.

This is not Unabridged as advertised

Any additional comments?

I have read and enjoyed some of these books before, and bought this collection on the basis of it not being abridged. Unfortunately, it became apparent during the first book that it had been heavily abridged, with whole sub-plots excluded, and it was very disjointed. Overall, they're still great stories, but I'd recommend seeking out the individual unabridged works.

Great story but hard listening

A Maupin is not a great narrator. Monosyllabic and lacking in depth and somewhat whiney when speaking the female characters, it was hard sometimes to follow the flow and tone of the story, and even which character was speaking. A wonderful story but I think it would have been better served if a more dynamic actor or tease had delivered it.
