Cynthia Darlow's amusing twang is a perfect fit for Judy Connor's memoir about her ex-husband and their shared custody of one brown dog. These two characters are referred to as The Ex-Husband and The Brown Dog. This tour of New Orleans and the territory of an unconventional divorce is well paced and engaging. Darlow can pull off the Southerner's skill of masking sarcasm with politeness, perfectly gilding Connor's dialogue. While many episodes of The Ex and The Brown Dog will leave the listener in giggles or astonishment, this memoir is more than comedy. Connor's portrayal of life, love, and reincarnation in humid New Orleans is given a life of its own by Darlow. R.F. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
