by | Read by Brad Pitt

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

In this lyrical, coming-of-age story set in the forties, a young man rides to Mexico from Texas to find work with cattle and horses. Haunting music introduces each cassette and provides background for Brad Pitt's dramatic narration. His even cadence and soft, Southern drawl match the setting. Pitt is especially talented in dialogue, and John Grady Cole and all the people he encounters vividly come alive. Although the presentation begins slowly, Pitt's wonderful narrative style captures the tone and emotion of the author's words and moves the audience along to the story's sad conclusion. A powerful presentation. A.A.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 94]
