The kind, gentle, and very funny humor of Patrick F. McManus features vignettes from all stages of his long life, from his boyhood to his experiences as a grandfather, in rural Idaho. For most of this reviewer's listening I, not having studied the cover with enough care, thought that McManus himself was reading. Here, thought I to myself, is one of those times when the author's own voice is just perfect for the text! Well, now we know that it was Norman Dietz who was so purely right, so warmly and expressively perfect. He captures crotchety characters and young laddies and everybody else--yes, even the author himself. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
