LILLIAN BOXFISH TAKES A WALK

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Xe Sands

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Between author Rooney's story and narrator Xe Sands's craftsmanship, this WALK will sweep listeners off their feet. Sands captures the essence of 80-year-old Lillian Boxfish, who is modeled after groundbreaking advertising icon Margaret Fishback, a former Macy's copywriter and poet. On New Year's Eve, 1984, Lillian walks toward her usual New York restaurant. But this New Year she's seeking sustenance beyond food. It is Lillian's path that evening--literally through Manhattan and figuratively through her life--that Sands recounts. Through Sands we feel the force of Lillian's personality--with all its drive, wit, and grace--as well as the counterforces that want to constrain it. A concluding interview explores why the performances of the most exemplary narrators are so seemingly effortless yet so compelling. K.W.
