Significant others by Armistead Maupin( Book )

65 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is now 1985 and much of the action is set in the Russian River area north of San Francisco. Here, successful businessmen from around the globe gather at Bohemian Grove for a three-week encampment of male bonding, while downriver from them events at Wimminwood, a lesbian music and arts festival, threaten the relationship of DeDe Halcyon-Day and D'orothea Wilson. Returning characters include Mary Ann Singleton, who is having difficulty balancing her commitment to her career as a local talk show hostess with her obligations as a wife to Brian and mother to Shawna, the child of her friend Connie, who entrusted the girl's care to Mary Ann on her deathbed; Michael Tolliver, the romantic gay man who has tested HIV-positive and is taking AZT to combat the threat to his immune system; and Anna Madrigal, the transgendered landlady who mothers her tenants at 28 Barbary Lane on Russian Hill and is fighting to preserve the historic wooden steps of the lane. New characters include Thack Sweeney, who meets Michael during a tour of Alcatraz and Wren Douglas, a plus-size model whose best-selling self-help book offers hope to overweight women. There is also a focus on a previously minor character, Roger "Booter" Manigault, DeDe's stepfather and a member of the Bohemian Club, who accidentally stumbles into Wimminwood and is held captive by one of its more militant organizers. Brian's college-aged nephew Jed also makes an appearance as a young Reaganite more interested in getting into Harvard Law and making money than having fun."--Wikipedia plot summary, viewed Aug. 11, 2011
Maybe the moon : a novel by Armistead Maupin( Book )

44 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maybe the Moon, Armistead Maupin's first novel since ending his bestselling Tales of the City series, is the audaciously original chronicle of Cadence Roth - Hollywood actress, singer, iconoclast, and former Guinness Book record holder as the world's shortest woman." "All of thirty-one inches tall, Cady is a true survivor in a town where - as she says - "you can die of encouragement." Her early starring role as a lovable elf in an immensely popular American film proved a major disappointment, since moviegoers never saw the face behind the stifling rubber suit she was required to wear. Now, after a decade of hollow promises from the Industry, she is reduced to performing at birthday parties and bat mitzvahs as she waits for the miracle that will finally make her a star." "In a series of mordantly funny journal entries, Maupin tracks his spunky heroin across the saffron-hazed wasteland of Los Angeles - from her all-too-infrequent meetings with agents and studio moguls to her regular harrowing encounters with small children, large dogs, and human ignorance. Then one day a lanky piano player saunters into Cady's life, unleashing heady new emotions, and she finds herself going for broke, shooting the moon with a scheme so harebrained and daring that it just might succeed. Her accomplices in this venture are her dithery housemate, Renee, and her best friend Jeff, a gay writer who sees Cady's struggle for visibility as a natural extension of his own war against the Hollywood Closet." "As clear-eyed as it is charming, Maybe the Moon is a modern parable about the mythology of the movies and the toll it exacts from its participants on both sides of the screen. It is a work that speaks to the resilience of the human spirit from a perspective rarely found in literature."--Jacket
