In the eighth Tales of the City installment, Mary Ann Carruthers (née Singleton) returns to San Francisco and her dear friend Michael “Mouse” Tolliver for comfort after the double punch of her husband’s very public infidelity and her diagnosis of uterine cancer. Author/narrator Armistead Maupin does not trouble to “do voices”; instead, he lavishes the listener with soft-spoken, courtly charm and projects deep compassion for the characters he’s lived with for more than 30 years. He also offers a nod to the more lurid, breathless style of earlier volumes in the series by providing a theatrically pathetic coda to a major plotline from book one.
