Description du produit

Revue de presse

"One of the most acclaimed sagas of our time…A celebration of life in all its craziness…As good as anything Maupin has offered us" (John Sutherland The Times)

"The brilliance of Maupin is his mingling of high camp with tragedy and deep feeling – all with a miraculously light touch" (Daily Mail Wendy Holden)

"A proper Maupin-esque swansong – moving, funny and obscene. We expect nothing less" (Isabel Berwick Financial Times)

"Christopher Isherwood was absolutely correct when he declared Maupin to be the Dickens of the modern world" (Chuck Palahniuk) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

Présentation de l'éditeur

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. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

l'écriture en grand format de la maison "Harper Luxe" est vraiment confortable, cela change de l'édition originale de ce roman (livre format A4 mais écriture pas top) et c'est bien mieux que le format poche... Maison d'édition à recommander
quant à l'histoire, on voyage toujours, on découvre de nouveaux personnages et ceux que nous connaissons déjà, bien que vieillissant, nous font découvrir la suite de leurs aventures, Toujours attachants malgré leur âge mais ils restent réalistes

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From one star to five, and all it took was a rainy weekend ... 25 février 2015
Par Chrissy the Stooges Woman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The first time I read it, I was angry. Without giving away any spoilers, I was angry because it didn't end the way I was SURE it was going to end - with all the loose ends neatly tied up in a bright red shiny bow. Just like all the other books in the series were - especially the early ones.

So I finished it, and deleted it from my Kindle, and growled and cussed under my breath (and sometimes over it) about how Armistead had "lost it" and "ruined the series" and all the other comments you can see from the one-star reviews - I agreed with all of them.

Then - the past week or so - I was feeling really melancholy. For some reason, "life" was just hitting me hard, and I found myself thinking about Anna Madrigal, and how she would respond to some of the problems I was having.

And I put the book back on my Kindle, and started reading it again.

And when I got to the end ... I wept. Not from sadness (though that's there too), but from joy, and gratitude. To Anna, and to Armistead Maupin, for giving me a book - and a way of seeing things - that was completely different from my expectations - and yet which had it all. Joy, and pathos, and humor and love.

It's all there. THEY are all there - all the characters you remember and love from Barbary Lane and vicinity. They're there - and this book contains them all, and more.

And if this review sounds a bit incoherent, well ... it's just because I know now what I need to do, to break free from this melancholy.

I need to do what Anna did. Look back ... and then look forward.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Final novel in ground breaking series 10 mars 2014
Par Joshua D. Whitehouse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
What started out as a series in the San Francisco Chronicle, turned into a national favorite, became two television mini-series and a musical is now considered complete. Armistead Maupin's novels have become more reflective as he and they matured, mostly in part due to living through and surviving the AIDS crisis. In a way this novel is saying farewell to the last of the old San Francisco that the Internet chased away. However hope exists for the next generation to experience their own growth in ways only the City by the Bay can ever provide.

The focus is on Jake, a FTM transgender gardener and Shawna, Brian and Mary Ann's adopted daughter as they struggle with the next phase of their lives. Counterpoint is provided in a flashback to the early days of Anna Madrigral as the son of a whorehouse madam. We learn about why Anna came to San Francisco. In addition Michael and Brian struggle in their relationships - Michael's marriage to a younger man and Brian's newest bride. All,the characters struggle to find their place amongst the current SF backdrop and during a trip to Burning Man.

Armistead writes in touching language and as always you feel the characters and their identity struggles as they love and learn. There isn't any grand farewell to SF, but the loss is still there. Armistead wonders as many do what is to become of his beloved city. It should be noted he moved to New Mexico recently.

Whoops! Thought there were only 7 books in this series. Yea, this was a nice graceful way of saying goodbye. It all started with Mrs. Madrigal so it makes sense it'd have to close with her too. Maupin shows the changing attitude of the city, the changing laws and such. Things are no longer the free for all they used to be. Everyone is aging. But most are finally finding themselves, finally accepting who they are and loving it. Mrs. M is at the end of her days but she's surrounded with people who truly care about her (an enviable situation). And most of her former tenants show up too. They are a family. And no matter what each has gone through and what bad things each may have done, because Mrs. M saw something special in them originally, you find they come to be the good souls Mrs. M saw in them. This is a lullabye.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Any Maupin is good Maupin 22 janvier 2014

I wish I had not read other reviews first, to be sure my opinion is all me. Oh well. Live and learn.

I was happy to see old friends, but think new readers should definitely start with the first book. Maybe it's just me, but my old friends didn't seem quite themselves at times, or a bit like a cardboard cutout of themselves. Not as much telling detail as in previous books, or something?

I dunno - I'm a reader, not a literary analyst. And I've only read it once so far, so I could be way off. But I must say I have the desire right now to reread the first six rather than this one. Although I read this one in one sitting......!

I was very interested to learn about Andy, and I definitely enjoyed meeting Margaret. Mother Mucca was another character who didn't seem quite herself to me, but of course she would have changed after Andy left.

The last few chapters seemed kind of rushed and contrived to me (although the "contrived" part is not necessarily a complaint - the first six books certainly had their share of coinkydinks), but I was sure happy with the outcome.

One thing I've always appreciated about Maupin is the way he shares his experiences with us. I was interested to learn about Burning Man.

I also enjoyed the occasional references to earlier books, as a reward for having read them. I found one inconsistency with previous books, but I've forgotten what it was, so I guess I'll be re-reading this book soon for my own curiosity.

Random observation: This book nails the current economic situation at page 104 location 1536, per my Kindle. Sadly.

No review of this book should reveal too much about the plot apart from then fact that we get to revisit our old friends, find out more about Mrs. Madrigal, and go on one, last journey into the world that so many of us wish we could live in.
This is written in true Maupin style, with humor, sadness, and impossible plot contrivances that would lead to a one star review for any other book, but in his world, just seem to work perfectly.
I laughed, I cried (and books don't normally make me cry), and I don't think that this series could have ended on a different note. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Armistead for the most wonderful series of books ever written. If you ever read these reviews, you sir are responsible for me moving to San Francisco and spending some of the happiest years of my life there.
Now, maybe you could write just ONE more ..... :-)
