Maupin is the author of the Tales of the City series--if you liked those, you'll like this too!
i am a big fan of the author. knowing that he never writes anything mainstream,this was a different kind of book,the life and times of a little person. you laugh ,you cry and roll your eyes all the time you are reading this...just give it a try...it will make you laugh.
A very different kind of book by Maupin about a 31 inch tall woman, Cadence Roth: touching and funny. A very enjoyable read!
Another wonderful book by the author of Tales of the City series (set in San Francisco), Maybe the Moon is set in Los Angeles. This is possibly Maupin's best work yet!
This book was a complete surprise to me because I did not know the subject of it. Because it was a surprise, I learned a great deal about dwarfs, homosexuals and actors. Some I liked and actors, well, debatable. It was enlightening and funny. I will miss Cady!
I love Armistead Maupin, and this book is no exception. I think I love it even better than my favorite "Tales of the City" book, Babycakes. Yes, it's that good. Always hopeful, always quirckly, Maupin is at his best here.
Great book, well-written although I didn't see it as so much humorous as some of the reviews say...I found it heartwarming and so well written that you felt a lot of empathy for the main character, Cadence.
