It takes a lot of listening to find a voice like this. Paul Hecht speaks without regional accent, and each word is perfectly placed. He reads without mannerism, leaving no vocal fingerprints, as it were, and his sound will be hard to recognize again. Mr. Mistler, on learning that he's a victim of terminal cancer, flies to Venice, his favorite city, where he attempts to organize his narrow future by allowing himself to call up his past. The story concludes with an interview with the author, but the real bonus is the performance of Paul Hecht. J.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
