A stylized morality tale about desire, decency, and fulfillment, this novel, narrated by its main characters, concerns two couples who, over the course of thirty years, become so close as to be nearly one semi-functional family. Sex seems to be the motiving force here; sordid deeds and agonizing thoughts of sordid deeds are rendered in an innocuous diction that does little to make them attractive. Seven actors preside serviceably, if unexceptionally, each impersonating one of the narrating characters. They reinforce the feeling of circumspect salaciousness that makes this a perversely diverting listen. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
