DEEP SOUTH Four Seasons on Back Roads

by | Read by John McDonough

Contemporary Culture • 23.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

John McDonough, who's narrated Paul Theroux's work before, brings his gravelly voice and musical ear to this complex and interwoven work of travel narrative. The setting for Theroux's most recent peregrinations is the rural South, and McDonough's challenge is to capture the dialects of the residents of the Black Belt states. He adeptly mimics the long, languid inflections of the locals and does a fine job with the new immigrants from India and Iran, too. This road book with digressions on Southern literature, culture, and the region's unlikely resemblance to a third-world country is presented with art and style.
