Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ari Fliakos

Fiction • 21.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The inspired pairing of one of the most promising novelists in years with a gifted narrator who brings intelligence, humor, and immediacy to every word makes for a rare listening treat. Ari Fliakos finds a true and distinct voice for every character--from the emotionally overwhelmed and underachieving writer in search of his long absent mother to a hippie entrepreneur on the make, a dirty cop on the take, a vocally fried coed, and even a sly Norwegian house spirit, the Nix himself. Sometimes a heartbreaking coming-of-age tale, at other times a searing sociopolitical examination of the last 60 years, this sprawling and very American story makes for marvelous listening. With a perfect mix of vocal energy, world-weariness, and keen observations, Hill's novel seems boundless. B.P.
