Armistead Maupin parlayed his 1976 "Tales of the City" Chronicle series into books, television miniseries and a musical. His characters, who lived at the fictional 28 Barbary Lane, were a colorful and disparate cast who came to San Francisco to be themselves and to forge a family among like-minded friends.

Maupin, who is 69 and recently left San Francisco with his husband, Christopher Turner, for Santa Fe, N.M., has brought his landmark "Tales" series to an end with his ninth and final book, "The Days of Anna Madrigal" (HarperCollins), to be published Tuesday.

Q: How is life in Santa Fe?

A: It's markedly different, but in a way that's delighting me.
I'm happy not to hear the car alarms and fight the traffic. We are in an adobe house on 15 acres. I look out at the junipers and neighboring hills. We don't see any neighbors.

There are coyotes and rabbits in our yard and ravens circling in the valley. We have a little post office in the village where we bump into Ali MacGraw. Most of the folks are funky Santa Fe types who don't hesitate to wear sweatpants and cowboy boots to the corner market. It's one of the gayest places, and one of the worst-dressed places, in America, and so I knew it was for me (laughing).

Q: What was the impetus for your move?

A: San Francisco was getting too pricey for us. Riches and fame aren't the same thing. Writers have been enormously devalued. We wanted space, and nature. I really wanted a backyard for our dog. I think we have one now! We've made some lovely friends here. Eccentricity is valued here in the same way it used to be valued in San Francisco.

Q: You lived in San Francisco for four decades. Did it lose some of its quirkiness that you treasure?

A: There are wonderful things happening all over the city, and we don't intend to live apart from the city permanently. I'd love to find a bolt-hole somewhere in the city that would be like a pied-a-terre for us. But we both wanted a new experience.

I remember how I religiously read Herb Caen when I first moved to San Francisco, and read his column to find out how I should feel about the city. What I didn't like was when he went off on a bender about how he missed the old days, the '30s and '40s.

I vowed when I got older, I wouldn't look back at the city and say it was so much better. Times change. New generations come along. It's easy to go on a diatribe against techies, but they want to find the cutest spot in the cutest city, too . . . .
http://www.sfgate.com/books/article/...in-5158027.php

As I have described before, I am about Maupin's (we have met) and feel some of the same impulses. He moved to San Francisco a bit before I did and I acted on the impulse to escape it (hence my "name" here) a bit before he did. Unlike him, I did NOT sell my San Francisco home (mine's not as nice nor worth as much as his was) nor did I get a place in the desert Southwest with 15 acres, but I too have "space and nature" on a smaller scale--Any night I choose to go out from 11 PM onward I can hear the coyotes howling and both the rabbits and the ravens are ubiquitous (along with Harris Hawks and rattlesnakes and javelinas and even mountain lions).

Like Maupin, I don't want to "live apart from (San Francisco) permanently", but every fall I look forward to my 6-months with "space and nature" and the Spanish heritage of the Southwest (Tubac, Arizona, near me, is almost like a Santa Fe in miniature): https://www.google.com/search?q=Tuba...w=1237&bih=619

So many people in Santa Fe have second homes there and some are very well known outside Santa Fe but like to melt into the local fabric while they're there. Maupin is kind of an exception for cutting the cord, I'd say. When I worked in Santa Fe I saw a few very well known people but per the custom here, you just leave them alone and treat them like anyone else (although I nearly got into an embarrassing duel with Alan Arkin over some plum wine at a store). But yeah, 15 acres with Ali McGraw as a neighbor suggests he lives in Tesuque which is a kind of rustic, weatherbeaten Bel Air to Santa Fe's Los Angeles...

That's OK. Back in SF I had to report (Dame) Kiri Te Kanawa to the HOA because her maid kept leaving bags of her trash on the floor in the trash room and not putting them down the chute (I'm just assuming she didn't take out her own garbage). It happens.

Any new construction taking place in Santa Fe?
Last time I was there a few years ago I noticed some decent infill projects around the Plaza and Railyard District.

Lots of great pictures in this thread. Love the Adobe architecture. Hope to make it out to Santa Fe in the next few years.
