Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator John Pirhalla captures tumultuous periods in the life of Manuel Vilas, the renowned Spanish poet and novelist. In a smooth timbre and varied tone, Pirhalla walks listeners through Vilas's waning career, addiction, infidelity, and divorce. The author says, "Behind me I sense somebody tracking my footsteps. It's the remains of my dead father and mother; they cling to my loneliness." Pirhalla narrates nonchalantly--as if seeing ghosts is an everyday occurrence. Meditative and insightful, this audiobook should resonate with those who are looking for inspiration amid life's most difficult challenges.
