Praise for Babycakes

A consummate entertainer...It is Maupin's Dickensian gift to be able to render love convincingly

Times Literary Supplement

Maupin is a richly gifted comic author

Observer

San Francisco is fortunate in having a chronicler as witty and likeable as Armistead Maupin

Independent

Like those of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Armistead Maupin's novels have all appeared originally as serials...it is the strength of this approach, with its fantastic adventures and astonishingly contrived coincidences, that makes these novels charming and compelling

Literary Review

May well be the funniest series of novels currently in progress... Maupin's ear for dialogue is as acute as his feeling for characterisation, and the net result is as engaging a read as you are likely to encounter in many moons
