Michael Tolliver, the sweet-spirited Southerner in Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City series, is arguably the best-known gay character in fiction. For almost 30 years, millions of devoted readers around the world have revelled in Michael's adventures as he searched for love in San Francisco and discovered his true family among the tenants of 28 Barbary Lane. Now, fifteen years after concluding his groundbreaking saga, Maupin revisits his queer Everyman, tracking the 52-year-old gardener through the course of a single day in the 21st Century.§Michael Tolliver's "Lives" is not, strictly speaking, a continuation of the Tales series but a finely detailed portrait of one man's hopes and fears as he inhabits the future he once thought he'd never experience. Filled with gentle insights about the human condition - and Maupin's unmistakable wit - Michael Tolliver is a novel about the act of living and the small miracles that make it worthwhile.show more
