ON THE ROAD

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tom Parker

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1957

Reflecting the jazzy style of its day, ON THE ROAD gave an honest vision to a post-war generation of bored youths longing for sex, drugs and adventure on the open road. Kerouac counterpoints the rhythms and structures of Sal Paradise’s long, poetic sentences with Dean Moriarty’s bursts of raw energy to create the music of this apotheosis of Beat. Tom Parker (aka Grover Gardner) performs with intelligence in pacing and characterization and complete awareness of meanings. Parker’s strong but relaxed voice carries us through the lonely, love-starved American landscape in which the mystical (and now mythological) Moriarty fights a losing battle against oblivion. Tom Parker’s performance is tremendous. He makes it seem so easy! P.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
