NAMED AS ONE OF THE BBC’S 100 MOST INSPIRING NOVELS Now a Netflix series starring Ellen Page and Laura Linney . . .’It’s an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be seen in San Francisco.’ Oscar WildeMary Ann is twenty-five and arrives in San Francisco for an eight-day holiday.But then her Mood Ring turns blue.So obviously she decides to stay. It is the 1970s after all. Fresh out of Cleveland, naive Mary Ann tumbles headlong into a brave new world of pot-growing landladies, cut throat debutantes, spaced-out neighbours and outrageous parties. Finding a job as a secretary at an ad agency, Mary Ann wants to start her own life, away from her parents and with the flower-power freedom to make her own friends and her own decisions. The saga that ensues introduces vignettes that are manic, romantic, tawdry and touching – unmistakably the handiwork of Armistead Maupin.
