The Days of Anna Madrigal

Editorial reviews

The Days of Anna Madrigal

Like the volumes that preceded it, “The Days of Anna Madrigal” entertains, illuminates and — as always — leaves us wanting more.

It is the ending that Maupin's enormous, generous achievement deserves: quiet, centered and sad.

“The Days of Anna Madrigal” is a genial fable. Like the earlier “Tales,” it’s riddled with outlandish coincidences and best enjoyed under the willing suspension of disbelief.
