Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

As a 12-year-old boy confronts the tragic loss of his father, his unique healing process disturbs the adults around him. Howard McGillin's sensitive and thoughtful performance creates the surrealistic environment invented by young Nick Harper. McGillin eerily portrays a variety of "voices" only Nick can hear from the "after world." His in-depth depiction of Nick's alcoholic aunt and guardian, experiencing her own grief, expresses her desperate attempt to reach Nick without alienating him. McGillin portrays the child psychologist as stern and somewhat distant, which is exactly the way Nick finds him. As Nick evolves to the other side of his grief, McGillin allows the listener to experience his joy and freedom. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 96]
