Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Steven Hartley

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Listeners will be glad to discover kindhearted vinyl devotee Frank, who has his own music shop in a rough-and-tumble neighborhood. His patrons are a cast of quirky, lonely characters who gather to receive his musical suggestions, always tailored perfectly to what they need to hear at that moment. When a mysterious woman shows up, Frank finds himself drawn to her but scared to emerge from his own solitude. Narrator Steven Hartley's raspy, unrefined, British accent is a natural fit for characters who are rough around the edges. His narration underscores the psychological states of the ragtag group--which range from contemplative to anxious to angry. The story and the narration complement each other and remind us that music can bring people together and allow them to heal. S.E.G.
