One fiercely rainy night, driving up a mountain road, Jason Dark meets tragedy. It is a condition he is incapable of facing. A man of many failures, he begins to regenerate life and family through his vineyard. Then, he meets Troy, a dark-visaged man with failings not unlike his own. Together, they dream of redemption. A stylistic contrivance used by Gadol ("he said," "she said") acquires the resonance of a refrain as the pilgrimages of Jason and those touched by him develop. Both allegory and the reality of an all-too-possible situation are projected seamlessly in James's voicing. Superb in pacing, intense without overstatement, this remarkable work is delivered faultlessly. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
