Manchester Literature Festival are thrilled to present a special event with beloved and critically-acclaimed American author Armistead Maupin. One of our most distinctive storytellers, Armistead is the author of The Night Listener, Maybe The Moon, Michael Tolliver Lives, Mary Ann in Autumn and the bestselling Tales of the City series. A charming and engaging raconteur, Armistead will be talking about his long-awaited memoir, Logical Family, chronicling his odyssey from the old South to freewheeling San Francisco, and his evolution from curious youth to ground breaking writer and gay rights pioneer.

Reflecting on the profound impact those closest to him have had on his life, Armistead shares his candid search for his “logical family,” the people he could call his own. From his loving relationship with his palm-reading Grannie who insisted Armistead was the reincarnation of her artistic bachelor cousin, Curtis, to an awkward conversation about girls with President Richard Nixon in the Oval Office, Armistead tells of the extraordinary individuals and situations that shaped him into one of the most influential writers of the last century. He also recalls his losses and life-changing experiences with humour and unflinching honesty. What emerges is an illuminating portrait of the man who depicted the liberation and evolution of America’s queer community over the last four decades – and inspired millions to claim their own lives.

‘A book for any of us, gay or straight, who have had to find our family. Maupin is one of America’s finest storytellers, and the story of his life is a story as fascinating, as delightful and as compulsive as any of the tales he has made up for us.’ Neil Gaiman
