Dit boek las ik vroeger, in de jaren zeventig of tachtig. Grappig om het te herlezen. Toen ik er weer in begon, vond ik het maar flauw en traag, maar opeens kwam de vaart er in en toen werd het toch leuk om te lezen. Geschreven als feuilleton, dus af en toe heel spannend. ( )

Continuation of characters in Tales of the City and More Tales of the City. Enjoyable. ( )

More laughing out loud, more thoughtful pauses when remembering some of the awful stuff that happened back in the day, more caring about this merry band of people who populated San Francisco in the 1970s. Maupin sticks a genuine mystery into this book, and there were moments when I did not know if I put the book down because I did not want to find out "what happens", or if I was too excited to read "what happens". How he pulls an impossible story together at the end is a wonder to behold. And the heroes are totally lovable! ( )

Full-blown camp (in a ridiculous, unsexy way). I can't say why I continued to read this series other than the fact that I'm something of a completionist and the prose is incredibly easy to blaze through. ( )

Lovely narration by Barbara Rosenblat. I wish I could find the next 3 narrated by her, as I also have the last book to listen to. Worth a listen if you are a fan. ( )

Délicieux, tendrement ironique, chaleureux...Un régal.

Entre un ouvrier au grand coeur, une star de cinéma et son médecin favori - Jon Fielding pour ne pas changer-, Michael court toujours après l'homme de sa vie. Mary Ann, entrée à la télévision, court après le scoop de la sienne. DeDe revient de loin et Mme Madrigal cultive des petites herbes dans son jardinet...Ajoutez à cela quelques kidnappings, une course poursuite entre l'Alaska et Barbery Lane, et vous aurez une idée de ce pétillant roman d'où on ressort tout étourdi, un sourire bêta scotché aux lèvres.

Surely there are in everyone's life certain connections, twists and turns wich pass awhile under the category of chance, but at the last, well examined, prove to be the very Hand of God.

Evidemment, il y avait bien des étrangers pour continuer à prétendre que San Francisco était une ville qui ne connaissait pas de saisons, mais Mme Madrigal ne s'en souciait guère.
