Zachary King has it all--beautiful fiancée, high-level job, cool apartment. But when a cancer scare invades his placid world, he begins to make risky decisions, with life-changing consequences. Scott Brick performs the first-person narration with irony, sarcasm, and vulnerability. Given the story's New York setting, Brick's natural speech patterns provide realism in tone and inflection as listeners enter Zack's world. His portrayal of Zack's Viagra-charged alcoholic father deserves mention, as the men's shared history shapes Zack as a person. Brick's performance captures the regret and bravado present in many of the story's relationships, and gives Zack's response to his father all the rage and tenderness it deserves.
