Significant Others - Armistead Maupin
This is the 5th book in the Tales of the City series, and I think I liked this one the best so far. The overall plots were the most realistic of the books, and this book was able to bring out some of the more serious issues in the mid-80s without losing its overall charm. Parts of the story made me laugh really hard, and parts were very touching and sad. There are definitely characters I like more than others, but even the less likable ones seem very human. Maupin is a good writer; I enjoy his Tales and I am looking forward to finishing this series this year (and then anxiously awaiting more).
