THE EDEN EXPRESS A Memoir of Insanity

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pete Cross

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

This compelling true story chronicles Vonnegut's experience with mental illness and recovery in the late '60s and early '70s. Pete Cross imbues his narration with plenty of good humor and jaunty warmth, helping the listener to empathize with the author's experience. Young Vonnegut sets forth in his VW with his girlfriend, Virginia, some recreational drugs, and his loyal dog, Zeke, to find their promised land in British Columbia. Soon, the stress of building a viable farm takes a serious toll on Vonnegut as he initially dismisses--and eventually confronts--his severe episodes of schizophrenia. With a relaxed tone, Cross successfully conveys the easygoing attitude of hippie culture so vividly described in the writing while still giving the story's deeper moments the gravitas they deserve.
