Robert Harlan is a humble writer whose first novel soars onto the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list within weeks. David La Graffe's voice exudes joy when he depicts Robert and his wife, Allison's, unexpected publishing success. He also excels at characterizing the emotional costs of selling the book, especially the grueling travel for what their daughter, Carson, calls, "book tour," a euphemism for "daddy's always gone." In a compelling characterization, he distinguishes Harlan's descent into hubris until the moment of his epiphany, when his voice turns somber and husky. This unusual story, with its warm ending--a complete surprise--is one you will long remember. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
