The author's memoir of growing up in a tough Philadelphia neighborhood and finding a haven in a nearby barn where he learns to play polo reads like a novel. Narrator Landon Woodson delivers the story perfectly, bringing out its range of emotions. The sport sticks with Rosser, who goes off to military school and continues to play polo. Eventually, it becomes his salvation. Woodson offers the right inflections at the right times for the author's words--the emotional swings range from grief at the loss of a loved one to the pride Rosser feels in his accomplishments on the field. This unique story is enhanced by Woodson's narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
