The Days of Anna Madrigal by Armistead Maupin is published in the UK today. This is the last episode in the famous Tales of the City series, and anyone who follows The Vibes will know I’m slightly obsessed with the compulsive chronicles of San Francisco.
A few years ago, at a Manchester book signing, I may have planted the seed of this novel by suggesting that Mr Maupin wrote more about his ingenious character, Mrs Madrigal. He visited this very blog and said I could have been an influence! Of course I’m not claiming any credit, I’m just very happy to be holding this wish-list book in my hand.
Full review to follow shortly, stay tuned!
