Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Accomplished actor Michelle Santopietro makes a perfect Liza Durbin, a Brooklyn attorney who inexplicably finds that composer Franz Schubert has been channeled into her body. Capturing Liza's confusion, hysteria, and sense of humor, Santopietro brings alive Marson's imaginative novel in a wonderful production featuring the late composer's work. While the abridgment is choppy at times and Santopietro is a bit weak when reading characters other than the narrator, her rendition of Liza, coupled with Marson's gift of storytelling, makes this package as entertaining as the novel is original. Even Schubert weighs in occasionally on Liza's escapades, with a charming, elderly--though unidentified--voice. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
