CALL IT SLEEP

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Fiction • 17.25 hrs • Unabridged • © 1934

The most challenging passage for the narrator of this acclaimed novel occurs when ten-year-old David flees a family catastrophe. Guidall's empathetic handling of David's disjointed thoughts, and the meaning he brings to the fragments of harsh dialogue David hears, helps the listener experience the character's profound turmoil. While the rest of the novel is less impressionistic, Guidall delivers a virtuoso interpretation of David's family and friends, their New York accents and argot, and their use of Yiddish and Hebrew. In this way, a difficult, emotionally charged classic about a Jewish immigrant experience is made more accessible. S.K.
