Met Armistead Maupin over the weekend in San Francisco. Had breakfast at his house, an amazing place hidden behind a mass of tress at the top of one San Francisco's hills, with Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Andrew Greer, and a few other people. Had a great time, went out and bought Tales of the City later that day. Just finished. A great great read. Funny, cool, still relevant. Check it out if you can. Buy it here at Amazon.
