The celebrated novelist and poet returns to Port William, Kentucky, to tell the story of Jayber Crow, town barber. He is wonderfully performed by the talented Paul Michael. A one-time seminary student, Jayber now sits in his barber chair and watches the changes in his once agrarian world, espousing a Christian philosophy that is both ancient and fresh. Narrator Michael goes easy on the rural accents and handles the passages of life lessons with professionalism and grace. Michael allows his voice to age as the story pulls listeners deeper and deeper into Jayber’s quiet, unassuming life. Highlights include an unrequited love affair, eventually fulfilled just as life is drawing to a close. R.O. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
