Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Arthur Morey, Nile Bullock, Prentice Onayemi, Dominic Hoffman

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this collection of previously unpublished short stories by the award-winning author of THE COLOR OF WATER, an outstanding team of narrators portrays a variety of characters. Novelist McBride peels back the thin veneer on American life with intellect, emotion, and, at times, stinging humor. Arthur Morey affects an anxious tone and a purposeful pace as he portrays an antique dealer who discovers a priceless toy and deals with a stubborn man of God. In another story, narrator Nile Bullock takes on an adolescent tone as he perfectly captures the teenage dreamers in the Five-Carat Soul Bottom Bone Band as they deal with their aspirations for their music and conflict over how to cope with life, love, and hope.
