Park, aka "Pork," age 11, lives in DC with his mother, who avoids any mention of his father, a Vietnam War casualty. Seeing himself as an Arthurian knight of old, Park resolves to discover more about his father, who becomes his longed-for Holy Grail. Narrator Jeff Woodman's voice nails the emotional urgency and embarrassed awkwardness of Park's pre-adolescent search. Moving flawlessly through a variety of accents (Round-Table, Vietnamese-American, and rural Virginia), Woodman steps effortlessly and convincingly into each character's shoes, revealing his or her quirks and foibles in this one-boy crusade for truth.
