Listening to this intricately structured novel read by George Guidall is like hearing a demanding piece of music performed by a master. Guidall moves with assurance through continual shifts of time and place as the story of a small-town scandal emerges, not in sequence, but in layers. It's a tribute to both writer and performer that the listener is never disoriented. Guidall's fine performance draws attention to nuance and heightens the tension that develops as ever finer details are added to a picture whose outlines are clear from the beginning. J.N.
