Meanwhile, their venerable landlady takes the biggest journey of all without ever leaving home.

"Maupin has always been a humane storyteller, and an accessible one. His life-is-good-but-sloppy soap operas are marked by solid craft, superb dialogue, and what used to be called heart." Entertainment Weekly
