Eighty-two-year-old Frank Alwin, suffering the guilt of misspent political and personal power and the debilitating effects of a stroke, is desperate to make amends for a less than honorable life. His housekeeper, Adam, enlists son Eric to facilitate his journey of atonement. Michael Kramer narrates this story of father/son redemption in a flat monotone, laying down sentences like cards. Surprisingly, the understated style adds realism to Frank's desperate struggle to be understood and Eric's awareness that he can also find his way to forgiveness and new beginnings. N.E.M.
