THE KID

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Glen McCready

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Glen McCready's calm, gentle voice stands in stark contrast to Kevin Lewis's description of life in a violent and chaotic household. In 1970s' London, Lewis experienced severe beatings and neglect from his parents, taunting by classmates, and the inability of adults to offer any permanent safety or respite. McCready gives a poignant performance, conveying Lewis's current disbelief that his case managed to fall through the cracks of social services for so long. McCready's steady performance couples nicely with Lewis's determination to build a respectable life for himself. As Lewis steps off the straight and narrow many times before achieving his goals, McCready's narration provides a sympathetic, honest, and humble voice to a personal struggle told in eloquent prose.
