Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Hillary Huber and Malcolm Hillgartner deliver finely calibrated performances of this evocative novel about desire, loss, and identity. Set during the heat of a Greek summer, the audiobook focuses on two temporary next-door neighbors--a Greek ship captain who, for the first time in many years, is not at sea, and Mira, an American academic who is cleaning out her parents' Athens apartment. Over the summer, as we watch them navigate separate friendships and loves, we also listen to their late-night balcony conversations. Hillgartner, whose enticing voice is elegant and rough, offers a thoughtful performance of a man struggling with duty versus desire. Huber's Mira is a sympathetic mix of yearning, perplexity, and fortitude. Together they weave a beguiling tale. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
