Book Description
"An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco."
--New York Times Book Review

Tranquillity reigns in the ancient redwood forest until a women-only music festival sets up camp downriver from an all-male retreat for the ruling class. Among those entangled in the ensuing mayhem are a lovesick nurseryman, a panic-stricken philanderer and the world's most beautiful fat woman. Significant Others is Armistead Maupin's cunningly observed meditation on marriage, friendship, and sexual nostalgia.

"Comedy in its most classical form...some of the sharpest and most speakable dialogue you are ever likely to read."
--The Guardian

"The color is wonderful, the line bold and flowing. It is also wise, witty, loving and caring about the foibles and frailties we all seem to have."
--David Hockney

    Il quinto libro della serie Tales of the City. La formula rimane invariata: situazioni leggere e divertenti ma poco credibili, coincidenze a go-go (e del tutto improbabili), lieto fine d'obbligo. Ma i personaggi sono molto 'umani' e soprattutto in questo volume trasmettono una vulnerabilità che li rende irresistibili. Non si può non affezionarsi.
