A fun memoir from the author of "Tales of the City" that tells of his early life as a conservative firebrand. Ok, maybe not a firebrand but he did work for Jesse Helms. His early years were spent looking for the acceptance of his father but one day realizing he just had to be himself. He moves from North Carolina and makes a wonderful life in San Francisco. In San Francisco he is a life witness to AIDS, the assassination of Harvey Milk, and marriage acceptance. Maupin is so fun to listen to, you really can't stop. I need to go back and re-read his earlier work and catch up on anything I missed. The audio version ends with a bonus conversation between the author and Neil Gaiman.
