Auteur d'un feuilleton radiophonique écouté par des millions d'auditeurs, écrivain à succès, Gabriel Noone est une star. Ce qui ne l'empêche pas de pleurer à chaudes larmes quand Jess, son compagnon, le quitte brutalement. Mais voilà qu'un événement inattendu vient le tirer de sa déprime Pete, un garçon de treize ans porteur d'un lourd secret, fait irruption dans son existence, prenant la place du fils qu'il n'a jamais eu. C'est le début d'une incroyable histoire, où la réalité et l'illusion ne vont cesser de jouer à cache-cache, entraînant Gabriel Noone de plus en plus loin, dans une aventure qui bouleversera sa vie à jamais. Ambigu, sentimental, ironique, Gabriel Noone est la plus belle invention d'Armistead Maupin, qui nous donne ici un livre très personnel. Roman à suspense, Une voix dans la nuit est aussi un hommage à un genre porté à la perfection par Alfred Hitchcock dans Vertigo.

About the author (2001)

Armistead Maupin, known for his popular series of stories called "Tales of the City," was born in 1944 in Washington D.C. and received his B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Maupin describes himself in his early years as an archconservative, a republican, and a racist, who went to Vietnam in the late 1960's because he felt it was the right thing to do. In 1972, Maupin moved to San Francisco where his life changed dramatically. Surrounded by more accepting and tolerant people than he'd known growing up, he became open about his own homosexuality. His personal awakening sparked his interest in becoming a writer. "Tales of the City" began as a column for the San Francisco Chronicle. The series describes a group of characters that live together in a boarding house in San Francisco. The stories involve a variety of people, including male and female, gay and straight, and convey a social message of tolerance and honesty through their depiction of a life in which different types of people interact normally and naturally. The stories are humorous, touching, and sometimes satirical. Eventually, Maupin's Tales were collected into a series of six novels. In 1993, the British Broadcasting Company adapted them for a television series that aired on PBS in 1994. Armistead Maupin's other works include a novel entitled "Maybe the Moon," some pieces written for the theater, and articles and chapters contributed to several books and newspapers.
