Yes, Armistead Maupin, silly. You didn't really think I meant respected jurist Armistead Mason Dobie, did you? He's been dead for years!
We were just graced with a visit by Armistead Maupin, local literary icon known best for his Tales of the City series. His most recent installation, Mary Ann in Autumn, was released today, and we now have signed copies! It's not too early to buy holiday presents, and what's more unique than an autographed copy of a fine new novel by a local legend?
PS Here's a review from Sunday's Chronicle.
