BABYCAKES

When an ordinary househusband and his ambitious wife decide to start a family, they discover there’s more to making a baby than meets the eye. Help arrives in the form of a grieving gay neighbor, a visiting monarch, and the dashing young lieutenant who defects from her yacht. Bittersweet and profoundly affecting, Babycakes was the first fictional work anywhere to acknowledge the arrival of AIDS.

“Armistead Maupin is a first-rate, world-class novelist, creating characters so vivid, complicated, tender, and true as to seem utterly timeless.”  - Stephen McCauley

“Armistead Maupin is a true original. His tales are bang up-to-date. They will surprise and maybe shock you, but, I promise, they will make you laugh.”
