MAYBE THE MOON
Armistead Maupin’s most lavishly praised—and least read—novel is this saga of a
Hollywood actress plotting an overnight comeback with the help of her two best friends.
“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
“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.” - Entertainment Weekly
amuses, moves and angers you with the lightest of touches. It is,
as might be said of Cadence herself, a small masterpiece.” - Simon Callow, Vogue
