There’s never a wink in Jeff Woodman's reading, never a sneer. In fact, there’s never a whisper of judgment at all. And thank goodness. That would be unfair to Ebershoff's captivating feat of imagination about the first person known to have undergone “sex reassignment surgery.” Danish artist Einar Wegener—a real person—was six years into his marriage to American Greta Waud when he began transforming himself into a pretty young woman named Lili. Woodman never drops his tone of wonder even as he wades deeper into the extraordinary events and even more extraordinary love story. As Einar and Greta meet life on their own terms, Woodman keeps listeners engaged and on their side. M.O. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
