Character from Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City series.
Mona is living at 28 Barbary Lane at the beginning of the series:
she's the house hippy, into herbal teas and lots of drugs. She's
working as a copywriter for Halcyon Communications, and gets Mary
Ann Singleton, her room-mate, her first job(she later gets fired for shouting "Crotch" a lot). She also has a lot
of casual sex, which worries Anna Madrigal, the landlady, who
seems to take a motherly interest in her. In the second book she
meets a mad old lady called Mother Mucca on a bus while on angel
dust. Mother Mucca is the madam of a brother in Winnemucca, and
she takes Mona back there to work answering the phones (she has
an interesting stint as a sadistic nun while working there!) Mona
finds out that Mother Mucca has the same name as her, and
eventually discovers that she's actually her grandmother and that
Anna Madrigal (who she knows is a transexual) is her father..
After an affair with a model, D'orothea, Mona becomes firmly
lesbian. She moves to Seattle for a while and then becomes a mail-order
bride to Lord Roughton in England, where she takes up residence
as Lady Roughton, and adopts a son, Wilfred. The final book sees
her taking her (mother?) father to Lesbos on holiday.
