Overview

The calamity-prone residents of 28 Barbary Lane are at it again in this deliciously dark novel of romance and betrayal.

Editorial Reviews

The Times (London)
An unprecedented portrait of the agonies and absurdities of modern urban life. The funniest series of novels currently in progress.
New York Times Book Review
An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco.
St. Louis Post Dispatch
What makes Maupin's writing so rich and humorous is the way he juxtaposes the goings-on of irreversibly different worlds, flirtatiously overlapping them at times.

I love Maupin's books for very much the same qualities that make me love the novels of Dickins.

I first read this series of books about 20 years ago when I was the sole care giver for both my parents that were both battling cancer. After looking after both of them, getting them to doctors, looking after their households, and my household, not to mention struggling to stay employed I needed an escape and these wonderful books gave that to me. At the end of the day I was way too wound up to sleep and these wonderful characters took me to a wonderful world full of interesting and off the wall people. This series of books makes these fictional characters come alive. I would love to personally thank the author for them. I reread these books every 5 years or so and still enjoy them. This book makes me smile and I am sure if you read it you will too.
