Synopsis:

"I'm a fabulist by trade," warns Gabriel Noone, a late-night radio storyteller, as he begins to untangle the skeins of his tumultuous life: his crumbling ten-year love affair, his disaffection from his Southern father, his longtime weakness for ignoring reality. Gabriel's most sympathetic listener is Pete Lomax, a thirteen-year-old fan in Wisconsin whose own horrific past has left him wise and generous beyond his years. But when this virtual father-son relationship is rocked by doubt, a desperate search for the truth ensues. Welcome to the complex, vertiginous world of The Night Listener....


Review:
"A touching but rather facile meditation on the way artists manipulate facts in their quest for truth....[S]trong storytelling, punchy humor, and a warmhearted narrator carry the day."

Kirkus, 07/01/2000

Review:
"Mr. Maupin seems to be generating suspense mostly by refusing to make up his mind which way this story is headed, and by preferring vague platitudes about love and trust and hugs to an actual resolution....The dread that brought together the TALES OF THE CITY characters into such close, supportive community is miraculously diminished, but with it has gone some of Mr. Maupin's sense of purpose. The news is good, but it's not good for this book."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 10/09/2000
