The characters that filled the pages of the three earlier Tales of the City books with love and laughter are at it again.

An ordinary house-husband and his ambitious wife discover there's more to making a baby than meets the eye.

Unexpected help arrives in the form of a British monarch, a grieving gay neighbour, and an international ring of mail-order brides.

Armistead Maupin has written a comedy of manners for our times.
