Michael Tolliver Lives

Michael Tolliver Lives

Tales of the City 7

Summary

____________________

Now a Netflix series starring Elliot Page and Laura Linney . . .

This is a novel about the act of growing older joyfully and the everyday miracles that somehow make that possible.

____________________

Maupin revisits his all-too-human hero, Michael Tolliver, letting the 55-year-old gardener tell his story in his own voice.

Having survived the plague that took so many of his friends and lovers, Michael has learned to embrace the random pleasures of life, the tender alliances that sustain him in the hardest of times.

We follow the protagonist as he finds love with a younger man, attends to his dying fundamentalist mother in Florida, and finally reaffirms his allegiance to a wise octogenarian who was once his landlady.

And many familiar faces from the Tales of the City series make appearances along the way . . .

Reviews

  • More than enough charm, wit and pathos to keep even a Maupin virgin enthralled
