Baby Cakes

book | Fiction | 1984
US → HarperCollins

When an ordinary househusband and his ambitious wife decide to start a family, they discover that there is more to making a baby then meets the eye. 

Help arrives in the form of a grieving gay neighbor, a visiting monarch, and the dashing young lieutenant who defects from her yacht. Bittersweet and profoundly affecting, Babycakes was the first work of fiction to acknowledge the arrival of AIDS.

Reviews

Armistead is a true original. His tales are bang up-to-date. They will surprise and maybe even shock you, but, I promise, they will make you laugh. Ian McKellan
