More Tales of the City

snickering poolside, Upper Price Hill

As poolside books go, this one moved at an entertaining clip. Now to find the PBS video...

Read these all *several* times, loved them. Really liked the movies, too; I thought they were very well done, indeed. My only sorrow is that I was born about fifteen years too late to experience that wild time that he portrayed in his books. But, if I had, I might not be here now.

please indulge my boastful moment: back in 1998 when i lived in san francisco, i watched the premiere of More Tales of the City at Armistead Maupin's house. he invited me and some other friends to a small gathering which included a few of the show's cast members, including the deliciously handsome Mouse Tolliver (played by Paul Hopkins - not the original Mouse). i'm still amazed at the experience. I snapped a photo in his bathroom just to say i had been there but now I can't find it :)

It is indeed Crioknight.
The literary equivalent of Budweiser. Cheap and intoxicating if you go through it fast enough.

Just out of curiosity. Is that an Armistead Maupin book? I take it that it might be from the title of the posting.
