A newshound-manqué in Detroit is hired to publicize Ford's soon-to-be-unveiled Edsel. Garrick Hagon approaches the wise-cracking first-person narration in a Philip Marlowish affectation. He reads well enough, though you hear some weird pronunciations. Neither has he much sensitivity to mood, atmosphere and the book's architecture. It's a yeoman's job on a tome that demands little more than what he gives it. Y.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
