Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Prebble

Fiction • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Award-winning author John Lanchester's MR. PHILLIPS is a funny, touching reflection on the frailties and possibilities within a middle-aged Everyman. But be forewarned--this particular Everyman spends a lot of time thinking about (though not experiencing) sex. If sex words bother you, stop here. If they don't, prepare to be moved by Simon Prebble's sensitive rendering of a day in the life of an accountant who successfully calculated everything but the likelihood of losing his job. Unable to confide the loss to his wife, Mr. Phillips dresses for work on Monday morning and spends the day wandering London thinking about sex, love, and life's serendipities. Prebble masterfully varies his tone and pacing to keep the listener hooked on this fascinating, yet almost conversationless, narrative. A memorable story made unforgettable by Prebble's informed performance. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
