Earphones Award Winner

by Emma Donoghue | Read by Khristine Hvam, James Langton, Robert Petkoff, Suzanne Toren, Dion Graham

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Beginning with the story of Jumbo the elephant and his keeper, Emma Donoghue’s ASTRAY is a collection of stories about immigrants and emigrants—those who have moved to, from, and within the United States and Canada. Rather than a straight rotation through narrators, each narrator is assigned the story or stories that are best suited to his or her skills. The casting is perfect; all five narrators breathe life into their stories with equal skill, and they all fit their various stories beautifully. In addition to the spot-on casting, ASTRAY also includes a judicious use of music to designate the transitions between works, creating an unrivaled listening experience. J.L.K.
