Logical Family: A Memoir

Pressestimmen 'Master storyteller Armistead Maupin ― the man who defined the difference between ‘a biological family’ and ‘a logical family,’ who is both gifted with fearless art and the ability to speak for millions ― finally tells his own story. Logical Family is a sweet, filthy peach of a memoir from a cultural explosion of a man' (Caitlin Moran)'A book for any of us, gay or straight, who have had to find our family. Maupin is one of America’s finest storytellers, and the story of his life is a story as fascinating, as delightful and as compulsive as any of the tales he has made up for us.' (Neil Gaiman)'Should be read by anyone who has ever loved and lost . . . Maupin still has the knack of being able to make you laugh and cry on the same page' (Evening Standard)'I read Logical Family as slowly as I could, quite as I could never have read any of the Tales volumes all those years ago. The pleasure of its chapters, each a short story focussing on another member of Armistead's extended tribe, was such a heartwarming delight, I couldn't bear to have it pass me by. It was like having the great man visit and sit smoking and gossiping from an armchair at the foot of the bed.' (Patrick Gale)'[A] highly readable memoir.. .moving and with prize moments.' (Observer) Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Armistead Maupin is the author of Tales of the City, More Tales of the City, Further Tales of the City, Babycakes, Significant Others, Sure of You, Maybe the Moon, The Night Listener, Michael Tolliver Lives and Mary Ann in Autumn.
