An Interview with Armistead Maupin

Armistead Maupin talks to Beth Anderson, Audible's publisher, about the adaptation of his novel The Night Listener. The book and the movie, which stars Robin Williams, Toni Collette, Rory Culkin, and Sandra Oh, were inspired by Maupin's real-life friendship with Anthony Godby Johnson, a young man who'd written a harrowing memoir about being abused, but whose very existence soon came into question. In this interview, Maupin reveals how tricky the overlap between fiction and reality can be.

    "Deceptive wrapping"

    This was an excellent interview, and may have changed my mind somewhat about this Author. The interview was handled in an excellent manner as the Author spoke a lot of himself and his ideas. I started to read 'The Listener" some time back, and did not finish it. I had bought a book which I found very distasteful, and believe the wrapper info was misleading. I still believe the content of the book was not spelled out very well, however the discussion has made me curious enough to dig it out and complete the book. If I get through it, I may read more of his work.
