Mirron Willis relates this sensitive and often disturbing story of a white couple taking up residence in the largely black neighborhood of Atlanta’s Fourth Ward. The story varies in its tone and could have been a challenge for even the most experienced narrator. However, Willis is a narrator who not only assumes the identity of the story’s central character but also skilfully steps back into impartiality with the story’s omniscient narrator. Willis’s theatrical experience as a member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is apparent from his deep and inspired reading, though he never allows it to sound over the top or forced. The result is a perfect combination for a memorable listening experience. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
