    Read & download ↠ Logical Family: A Memoir 108 Logical Family, A MemoirMaupin's memoir reads like a chat with an old friend you haven't seen in ages You get to hear the backstory on events you knew happened such as not dying from AIDS the agony Anita Bryant perpetrated and the despair over the deaths of George Moscone and Harvey Milk; but this time you understand the impact on individuals Because Maupin is an icon in his own time and lived in the center of the gay rights movement this book is history Maupin's style of story telling that we all came to love from TALES OF THE CITY left me craving tea and cookies When I finished the book and closed the cover I patted it wistfully; just as I might sueeze the hand of a friend I know I must leave
