Plato Jones is the son of a Greek mother and a Welsh father and the grandson of two war heroes. His sister lives in New York with his father, who was remarried, and his mother travels back and forth to Greece, always with a sense of mystery. This excellent production is a dramatization of family secrets made human. Eve Karpf's reading is spectacular, from the exuberance she instills in Plato, to the thick, husky voices of the female characters. She creates an aura of the Mediterranean with the dentalized Greek vowels and puts music into the Welsh characters with a completely different sound. This tape is suitable for every age and everybody. Golden earphones all around. J.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
