In STRAY DOG WINTER, Australian narrator David Kirwan gives a performance that will generate feelings of sadness, shock, and joy in his listeners. Telling the story of young Darcy, who ventures to 1980s Moscow to connect with his estranged sister, Fin, author David Francis echoes all the best attributes of Graham Greene's classic novel THE THIRD MAN: the brooding atmosphere, the unrelenting sense of wariness that abounds in the curious protagonist, and the romance that brews against the backdrop of the Cold War. Kirwan's characters are well rounded, and he uses no forced accents, just the simplicity of prose in its purest form. L.B.
