Texas writer John Graves offers this outstanding memoir about his tours and travels throughout Europe during WWII and, subsequently, in the 1950s, which shaped his eventual career as a writer. Henry Strozier brings the stories to life with his earthy tone and steadfast delivery. Strozier could fool listeners into thinking they’re listening to Graves himself as his wise, old voice carries a certain weightiness. Listening is an easy and relaxing experience that will grab the collective imagination of the audience and whisk it off to another time and place. Graves is a writer to be admired for his strong prose and straight-talking attitude, and for his influence on today’s young writers. L.B.
