"An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco."
-- "New York Times Book Review"
When an ordinary househusband and his ambitious wife decide to start a family, they discover there's more to making a baby then meets the eye. Help arrives in the form of a grieving gay neighbor, a visiting monarch, and the dashing young lieutenant who defects from her yacht. Bittersweet and profoundly affecting, "Babycakes" was the first work of fiction to acknowledge the arrival of AIDS.
"Armistead is a true original. His tales are bang up-to-date. They will surprise and maybe even shock you, but, I promise, they will make you laugh."
"Maupin has a genius for observation. His characters have the timing of vaudeville comics, flawed by human frailty and fueled by blind hop."
"Armistead Maupin's San Francisco saga careens beautifully on."
--" New York Times Book Review"
