Sandi Toksvig is that rare breed, an excellent writer and a superb narrator. She perfectly conveys the zaniness of her story: Eve, wife of Adam and resident of Edendale, inadvertently kills her daughter’s fiancé. Toksvig gives us a look at a modern woman trying to do the right thing for those around her. She covers religion, sexuality, wealth, poverty, and justice with painful realism and humor. In particular, the narrator’s voices for a stroke victim and stereotypical celebrities are splendid. Toksvig understands every character from the inside out--as one would expect from their creator. Listeners will laugh and cry for a unique story and its perfect delivery. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
