Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" Series
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
I distinctly remember coming across this six-book series my during finals week of my senior year of college. I lived in a group house and at least three of us were reading them at the same time. People were harassed to hurry up and finish, books were snatched away whenever one was set down for a moment, and the qualities of each was hotly debated.
While not high literature, these serial novels — each chapter only two or three pages long — are the consummate beach read. Easy, engaging, evocative, transporting and easy to pick up and put down.
