Holter Graham’s performance of this bestselling first novel is a home run. This book is about baseball. It is about the perils, the beauties, the anguish of love—both gay and straight. It is about college and literature, especially nineteenth-century American novels. And, as for many good books, it is metaphorically about much more. Graham offers the equivalent of a full-cast production. Conversation drives this book, and Graham reproduces the interactions so realistically and effortlessly that the listener feels like a silent participant. All the major characters—male, female, young, old—have distinct and consistent voices. Between conversations, the narrative moves along at an easy, listenable pace. All in all, this book has something for everyone. R.E.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
