They say never meet your heroes as you will be disappointed, well last night we were both lucky enough to meet an exception to that rule.
Armistead Maupin has written Tales Of The City for about 40 years. First serialised in a San Franciscan paper then collected into a first novel, 'Tales' has had 9 volumes and this newest one, Days Of Anna Madrigal, is feted to be the last in the series.
These books are so important to so many people across the world as, especially in the late 70s / early 80s they were the first time that gay people were shown to be equal, not better or worse but equal.
Last night's reading & interview had a Q&A session. Questions were asked and answered with the authors trademark wit and candor but everyone there just wanted to thank him for writing the books in the first place.
If you've never read them, treat yourself.
