Watched the mini-series from this on PBS when it first aired -- fell in love with the whole thing and found three (at least) of my all-time favorite actors in roles within this series. THEN I went out and read the book the first time -- revisiting it was just as much fun as watching the Tales unfold week by week on TV all those years ago. NOW I'm going to do what I've alway intended to do since then -- I'm going to read the whole series of books -- one after the other like Sandy Duncan consumed Wheat Thins or the proverbial Emma consumed bon-bons -- or was it men? Whatever. Maupin has moved on from Tales though his latest revisits Mary Ann. Reading The Night Listener when it came out unsettled me thoroughly. Maybe the Moon is different and good and unsettling in equal measure. Maupin is good -- no matter where he takes the reader. I'm in need of good engaging entertainment and I have no doubt I'm going to have it!
