Michael Tolliver Lives
by Armistead Maupin

When I last left Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, it was with sadness. I was sure that he would end up like most of my gay friends diagnosed with HIV. At least, I didn't have to attend the funeral, it's only a story,right? Imagine my happiness to discover he lives!!! And with quite the young man!!! Old characters from 28 Barbary Lane also return. Shawna Hawkins, is now grown up and moving out on her own, straight Brian, her father, is finally looking to join 'the retired', and transsexual landlady, Mrs. Madrigal is now 85. This is a funny, poignant book about families and friends.

Armistead Maupin can be best remembered as the author of Tales of the City. A highly popular series that was made into a miniseries.
