HarperAudio to Release Armistead Maupin Collection

PW’s Audiobook Blog
Adam Boretz — March 13th, 2013

This month, our pals over at HarperAudio are releasing six brand new audio editions — available for the first time unabridged — of books by Armistead Maupin.

The titles — which feature some amazing actors — coming out on March 26 are:

Tales of the City, read by Frances McDormand
More Tales of the City, read by Cynthia Nixon
Further Tales of the City, read by Frances McDormand
Babycakes, read by Alan Cumming
Sure of You, read by Eric McCormack
Significant Others, read by Cynthia Nixon

When asked about the project, Cumming said:

“Armistead Maupin is a hero of mine. He manages to be eloquent and witty but never shies away from pain and loss. Reading this audiobook was not only something fun and challenging to do (the bobbing back and forth between continents from an accent point of view was certainly both!) but also a way to reconnect with the spirit of Armistead. And true to form, it was as fun and trippy and soulful as the man himself.”

Check out the following audio excerpts from each of the forthcoming Maupin audiobooks:
