This brilliant audiobook packs a punch, or a number of them, that you wouldn't expect just from reading a description of it. It's a compelling story of being lost in a wood in midlife, an exploration of ambition and values, and an intense tale of adulterous passion. Narrator David Costabile does almost everything needed here well, most especially delivering the highly charged erotic passages, which are plentiful. There is also a good deal of satire, some funny, some biting, some sad, which Costabile handles deftly. This is a complicated story of some quite privileged people, some gifted with talent or luck or obscene wealth, and many with none of the above, all jumbled together in this American moment. Who is truly rich? It's quite a question. B.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
