The author is most known for his Tarzan stories. Here Paul Woodson's spirited delivery enhances one of Burroughs's few realistic stories, which also parallels his own life. It's 1921 when Jimmy Torrance, who barely finished college, moves to Chicago in search of a good job. Woodson's Torrance is enthusiastic and meets every obstacle with confidence and optimism. Finally, after working as a waiter, milkman and hosiery salesman, he lands a job as an efficiency expert with the International Machine Co. Listeners will follow Torrance with fascination as he finds Assistant Director Harold Bince stealing from the company. When Torrance is framed, hearing the 1920s courtroom scenes provides a vivid look at this bygone era. The melodramatic conclusion--appropriate for the time--doesn't diminish one's enjoyment of the audiobook. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
