FAST COMPANY A Memoir of Life, Love, and Motorcycles in Italy

by | Read by Grover Gardner

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Don’t expect a leisurely ride through the Italian countryside. The author—a lawyer who is suddenly transported abroad to promote the image of a famed motorcycle company—finds himself immersed in a different culture. He quickly jumps on for the ride, and so will listeners, thanks to Grover Gardner’s delivery, especially his accents, which vary appropriately with the scenery. Assorted Italians, transplanted Brits, and apartment roommates make for lively characters. The young Italian man the author begins dating is given a consistent identity. Gardner’s pronunciations are spot-on, giving listeners the feeling they’re gaining an Italian lesson as well as a slice of culture. Gardner’s expressive intonation and passionate voices make the journey amusing. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
