THE FORTUNATE PILGRIM

by | Read by John Kenneth

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1964, 1992, 1997

This novel, written before The Godfather and The Last Don, uniquely focuses on an Italian family with a powerful woman, Lucia Santa, at its center. The setting is New York just after the turn of the century. Chivalrous and gentlemanly John Kenneth's portrayal of life in Hell's Kitchen is an elegant contrast to the incessant and harsh struggles experienced by Lucia Santa's family. His fluent Italian intertwined with street slang delivers insights into Lucia's first-generation siblings and their emerging American attitudes. Kenneth simulates many family disputes, contrasting the attitudes of Lucia's children with strict Italian tradition. The interpretation of Lucia's husband's tirades and his ultimate committal attests to the absolute strength this character possesses. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
