9780062196248 The Days of Anna Madrigal, the suspenseful, comic, and touching ninth novel in Armistead Maupinâ€™s bestselling â€œTales of the Cityâ€ series, follows one of modern literatureâ€™s most unforgettable and enduring charactersâ€”Anna Madrigal, the legendary transgender landlady of 28 Barbary Laneâ€”as she embarks on a road trip that will take her deep into her past. Now ninety-two, and committed to the notion of â€œleaving like a lady,â€ Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her â€œlogical familyâ€ 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 Annaâ€™s family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevadaâ€™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.
