Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

William Kowalski makes his literary debut with this well-crafted tale of the burden of lineage and legacy. The illegitimate son of an unknown mother and a Vietnam War hero killed in battle, infant William Amos Mann IV is left on his grandfather's stoop one morning in 1970. His grandfather raises Billy on the lore of the Mann clan--stories so fascinating that Billy grows up to record them in print. Campbell Scott raises the level of this exceptional production with a masterful performance. With only subtle vocal shifts, believable and whole characters are formed. Slipping easily into the tradition of epic storytelling, this book is augmented by a superior storyteller. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
