About the Author: Armistead Maupin

Armistead Maupin was born in Washington, D.C., in 1944 but grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he served as a naval officer in the Mediterranean and with the River Patrol Force in Vietnam.

Maupin worked as a reporter for a newspaper in Charleston, South Carolina, before being assigned to the San Francisco bureau of the Associated Press in 1971. In 1976 he launched his groundbreaking Tales of the City serial in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Maupin is the author of nine novels, including the six-volume Tales of the City series, Maybe the Moon, The Night Listener and, most recently, Michael Tolliver Lives. Three miniseries starring Olympia Dukakis and Laura Linney were made from the first three Tales novels. The Night Listener became a feature film starring Robin Williams and Toni Collette.

He is currently writing a musical version of Tales of the City with Jason Sellards (aka Jake Shears) and John Garden (aka JJ) of the disco and glam rock-inspired pop group Scissor Sisters. Tales will be directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q and Shrek).

Maupin lives in San Francisco with his husband, Christopher Turner.

San Francisco, les années 70 : une ville pas comme les autres... Mary Ann est une jeune secrétaire naïve, originaire du Middle West, qui débarque dans un univers sans tabou où il faut surtout attendre l'inattendu. En compagnie de Mme Madrigal, sa très mystérieuse logeuse, du beau Michael, son colocataire toujours à la recherche de l'amant idéal, et de bien d'autres, elle nous entraîne dans des aventures plus invraisemblables les unes que les autres. Ce véritable feuilleton romanesque évoque tout l'esprit d'une époque et témoigne d'un humour - souvent satirique - et d'une chaleur humaine rares.
