The seventies are on the decline, but San Francisco, with its fury in its heart and body, still vibrates with a protest energy. Sexual liberation is consummated and is displayed in the streets in the colors of signs and flashy neon lights. Straight from Cleveland, twenty-five year old Mary Ann Singleton is walking the slopes of the "beautiful volcano" for the first time. She set up camp at 28 Barbary Lane, a shelter for "stray cats". Mrs. Madrigal is the matriarch of the old building, which houses a handful of bachelors: Mona, an advertising copywriter, her roommate Michael, unemployed and a follower of "forbidden love" and the handsome Brian Hawkins, an insatiable womanizer. The heroes of this enchanted tribe have delighted millions of readers around the world through the six volumes of this saga.
