This book follows its protagonist as he finds love with a younger man, attends to his dying fundamentalist mother in Florida, and finally reaffirms his allegiance to a wise octogenarian who was once his landlady.

Maybe the moon : a novel by Armistead Maupin( Book )

47 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,443 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
