HarperAudio to Release Armistead Maupin Collection

Adam Boretz -- March 13th, 2013

This month, our pals over at HarperAudio are releasing six brand new audio editions — available for the first time unabridged — of books by Armistead Maupin.

The titles — which feature some amazing actors — coming out on March 26 are:

Tales of the City, read by Frances McDormand
More Tales of the City, read by Cynthia Nixon
Further Tales of the City, read by Frances McDormand
Babycakes, read by Alan Cumming
Sure of You, read by Eric McCormack
Significant Others, read by Cynthia Nixon

When asked about the project, Cumming said:

“Armistead Maupin is a hero of mine. He manages to be eloquent and witty but never shies away from pain and loss. Reading this audiobook was not only something fun and challenging to do (the bobbing back and forth between continents from an accent point of view was certainly both!) but also a way to reconnect with the spirit of Armistead. And true to form, it was as fun and trippy and soulful as the man himself.”

Check out the following audio excerpts from each of the forthcoming Maupin audiobooks:

Actress Kara Hayward — the daughter of Bill Murray and Frances McDormand and star of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom — will narrate the audio edition of ghostgirl author Tonya Hurley’s The Blessed. The audiobook will be published on September 25 by Simon & Schuster Audio and available as an unabridged digital download.

“I couldn’t be happier to narrate The Blessed,” Hayward said in a statement. “I’m really enjoying all the new experiences I’m having as a young actress and recording this audiobook has been a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the next audiobook in the series. I love this story and the world that Tonya has created.”

The Blessed is the first installment in Hurley’s latest trilogy, and follows the lives of Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy, three lost girls battling personal demons who become entangled with an enigmatic boy who believes he is a saint.

“I was absolutely thrilled when I learned Kara was going to be narrating The Blessed audiobook,” Hurley said in a statement. “I can’t think of a better young actress to take this story on. Kara is incredibly talented and I know fans are going to love her performance.”

The audiobook will also feature original music composed and performed by Depeche Mode, Yaz, and Erasure co-founder Vince Clarke. For more information on The Blessed, CLICK HERE.
