From the Publisher:

The Days of Anna Madrigal, the suspenseful, comic, and touching ninth novel in Armistead Maupin?s bestselling ?Tales of the City? series, follows one of modern literature?s most unforgettable and enduring characters?Anna Madrigal, the legendary transgender landlady of 28 Barbary Lane?as she embarks on a road trip that will take her deep into her past.

Now ninety-two, and committed to the notion of ?leaving like a lady,? Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her ?logical family? in San Francisco: her devoted young caretaker Jake Greenleaf; her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his daughter Shawna; and Michael Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton, who have known and loved Anna for nearly four decades.

Some members of Anna?s family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevada?s Black Rock Desert where 60,000 revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week. Anna herself has another destination in mind: a lonely stretch of road outside of Winnemucca where the 16-year-old boy she once was ran away from the whorehouse he called home. With Brian and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.

Author Bio
Armistead Maupin
Armistead Maupin was raised in a highly conservative family in Raleigh, North Carolina, the son of a lawyer. He flunked out of law school, then worked briefly as a reporter for Raleigh's WRAL-TV, where his boss was Jesse Helms. Following a tour in Viet Nam as a communications officer, he returned there to build housing for disabled Vietnamese veterans, an effort which earned him a Freedom Leadership Award from President Nixon. Maupin attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; several years after graduating, he began writing for the San Francisco Chronicle, where he introduced his "Tales of the City" column, which vibrantly described life in a boarding house. In 1974 he came out publicly as a homosexual. Since then, he has been an outspoken advocate for the rights and visibility of gay men and women.

Praise

"Mr. Maupin's adeptness at fluid dialogue, his flair for shaping characters who thread the needle between pop archetypes and singular human beings, and his great gift for intricate if occasionally preposterous plotting are all on display in the new book, which focuses on the later life of the title character." - Charles Isherwood 01/31/2014
