Earphones Award Winner

Young Adult • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

In Florida in 1936, Tugwell Dockery loses his parents to an auto accident and his 18-year-old brother to prison. Peck’s bittersweet story is memorably re-created by narrator Scott Shina. He enlivens the lingo and intonation of the era, rendering the less than perfectly grammatical language as simple poetry. As the brothers move toward a reunion, listeners get a glimpse into the cruelty of prison life. In Peck’s living history lesson, Shina enhances the nearly perfect text with lines like “My joints are stiffer than a Methodist sermon.” Everyone will enjoy encountering Bro. S.G.B.
