SANTA EVITA

by | Read by Joe Grifasi

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

Most know of the fascinating life of Argentina's heroine, Eva Peron. Santa Evita offers listeners a view of her magnificent death--and afterlife. Joe Grifasi's confident and spirited reading brings life to the large cast of Peron's mourners and enemies. Tomas Eloy Martinez's comic and haunting novel depicts the dual life of Peron: the soulful narration of her disembodied spirit juxtaposed with her embalmed and replicated corpse, which is worshipped--and fought over--by the Argentinean masses who adore her and the government bureaucrats who long to see all traces of Peron destroyed. A fascinating climax reconciles these larger-than-life aspects of Peron with Martinez's masterful storytelling and Grifasi's expert performance.
