Can Vincent Nolan, a former neo-Nazi skinhead, complete with death's head tattoos, just saunter into the office of a famous human rights organization, profess a change of heart to its director, Holocaust survivor Meyer Maslow, and turn his life around? Just like that! Well, yes, but it isn't that easy, and the discoveries that follow change everyone. Reader Eric Conger deftly presents Prose's interior monologues, which allow us to both listen to each character's dialogue and, at the same time, eavesdrop upon his or her thoughts. By expertly voicing each character, and following this with a slight tonal shift for the accompanying interior commentary, like asides in a play, Conger draws the listener seamlessly into Prose's subtle humor and her sometimes scathing satire.
