Listen to this audio performance for one minute and hear why Glass is a National Book Award winner. The author's elegant prose unfolds petal by petal, allowing each character to bloom slowly. Similarly, the setting reveals itself with rich imagery that, thanks to Ann Marie Lee's lyrical voice, nearly turns an audiobook into film. As the story shifts between a restaurateur and a pastry chef, the delicious kitchen descriptions adeptly keep up with the beauty of the language itself. Lee's performance captures the beauty and tragedy of everyday life and its relationships, triumphs, and challenges. The combination of Glass's skill and Lee's voice makes for a beautiful audio experience. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
