Audiobook Review: Logical Family: A Memoir

 Logical Family: A Memoir by Armistead Maupin

If you've followed Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City books (and the TV serials made from them), then you probably already have read about, or heard about, some of his life stories that he covers in this book.

Even so, to have the chance to hear him tell these stories in his own words, in his own voice, was quite special. Maupin has an uplifting and affirming way of writing, that is so accessible and so pleasant to read. Its that style coupled with his sincerity and honesty that captured readers from the initial serialized stories in the San Francisco Chronicle, and that made all of his Tales books such a joy to read. Like many gay men of my age these books hold a special place in my heart and bring back many memories of my own coming out and my life journey since.

That sincere, honest, pleasant style carries through here to the stories of his own life. I can't recommend this one enough - best in audiobook format.
