Armistead Maupin wrote the brilliant "Tales from the City" books and also a sweet little tome called "Maybe the Moon" which I would buy for everyone I knew who read because I loved it so. Here is an exerpt from a Planet Out interview done with the author recently.
So what are you reading these days? What new author has grabbed your attention?
I read a book recently when I was driving around Scotland with my husband, titled I Am Not My Self These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell. (The central character) is an ad exec by day and a seven-foot drag queen by night. His boyfriend is a crack-addicted escort and, believe it or not, it's absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking and heartfelt. Oddly enough, my British editor gave it to me because I had not run across it when it was published in the States.
Sounds pretty cool
