Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Carolina De Robertis

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Caro De Robertis is author and narrator of this historical novel about prohibited love during the 1970s in Uruguay. Fans of literary fiction will applaud their decision to narrate since they capture the lyricism of their prose with style and grace. Those seeking new voices in world literature will be delighted to discover De Robertis's tender, careful treatment of their five female protagonists—lesbians forced into hiding for fear of government reprisal. De Robertis meticulously characterizes Romina, Flaca, Anita, Paz, and Malena so that the listener remains oriented in each woman’s particular part of the story. The chapters weave together under their care to create a portrait of a nation during a turbulent time and the power of women's resilience. M.R.
