Review:

One of the ten best books of the year."--Entertainment Weekly"Wonderful, funny, poignant and gutsy. . . If you are already a fan of Maupin's Tales of the City, you'll like this new book just as much and maybe even more. If you've never read his work. . .you, like a lot of us, may find it an actual relief that such a tender and old-fashioned voice still exists in the literary world."--Annie Lamott, Mademoiselle"A kinder, gentler Day of the Locust. . .marked by solid craft, superb dialogue, and what used to be called heart. Maybe the Moon has all of that, plus a remarkable narrative ventriloquism. Chatty and self-promoting, tender and occasionally brusque, Cady's voice is perfectly pitched. And heartbreaking. There hasn't been a funnier, or sadder, novel this year."--Tom De Haven, Entertainment Weekly"Though Cadence Roth, the heroine of Maupin's captivating novel, is only 31 inches tall, her impact on the reader's emotions is enormous. . .A suspenseful story whose subtly foreshadowed ending delivers a dramatic clout."--Publishers Weekly"Highly funny and deeply poignant. . .Maupin sounds the feminine side of his psyche with a heartfelt resonance that few male writers ever accomplish."--Judith Wynn, Boston Herald"Scathingly funny, haunting. . . .Maupin enlightens, entertains and perhaps even empowers his readers."--Pam Perry, Atlanta Journal Constitution"Armistead Maupin is a first rate-world-class novelist, creating characters so vivid, complicated, tender, and true as to seem utterly timeless. . . .I'm willing to bet that fifty years from now Maupin's work will be read for its detailed descriptions of late twentieth century America, its rollicking humor and kind heart, its Chekoviancompassion, its Wildean wit, its intricate. . .sometimes unbelievablle but always utterly irresistible plotlines."--Stephen McCauley
