Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Robert Petkoff gives voice to the edgy, eclectic, and energetic ideas of National Book Award winner Jonathan Franzen. Petkoff hits the difficult balance between being ironic and earnest that is so characteristic of the author's essays. Petkoff races through the complicated, interesting sentences while at the same making sure that we keep track of their meaning with precise enunciation. Listeners are treated to an intellectual persona that sounds like one would expect of Franzen himself. For fans of his fiction and nonfiction alike, this is a title one can dip in and out of on long walks or slow Sunday afternoons. Petkoff makes sure this is an entertaining, as well as contemplative, experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
