Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Colum McCann

Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

National Book Award-winning and bestselling author McCann narrates this blending of the fact and fiction of a Palestinian and an Israeli father who both lost children to the Middle East conflict. McCann melds the emotional pain and common tragedy creating the unlikely real-life friendship of Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan, who, along with McCann, have pledged to tell the story of the physical and emotional wreckage of the war. McCann adds flawless pacing and a poignant edge to the account of two men who were raised to hate each other but end up together on a mission. McCann tells this complex and heartbreaking story with compassion and empathy for people strafed by the worst thing that can happen to a parent, the loss of a child. R.O.
