With The Days of Anna Madrigal, Armistead Maupin closes the nearly 40-year saga of “family”life revolving around the title character’s boarding house at 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco. The ninth novel in his Tales of the City series has just been published by HarperCollins.

Since it started as a serial in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1976, Tales of the City has been adapted into three television series and several staged musical shows. There are audio editions of the books and Tales of the City walking tours. Olympia Dukakis, who portrayed Anna in all three of the TV series, is interested in a film version of the new book.
