Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Aaron Baker

Fiction • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This final novel by Ivan Doig, an iconic author of the American Northwest, has received the star treatment it deserves in David Aaron Baker's empathetic and imaginative narration. Instead of mourning Doig's 2015 death, we have one more chance to celebrate his unique writer's voice while hearing the marvelous adventure of 11-year-old Donal on a Greyhound bus in 1951. He's been living with his grandmother, a Montana ranch cook, but when she needs an operation, he's shipped "off east" to an unknown great-aunt. Soon, Donny and the aunt's not-quite-husband have escaped to ride the road together. Baker channels Doig's humor, kindness, and wisdom, and treats us to an unforgettable panoply of characters, including cowboys, crooks, hobos, canasta-playing ladies, plus Donny and his 70-something German pal.
