Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Reading

Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

An award-winning author writes her eighth book, and an award-winning narrator records it. The superb audio short stories that result are hysterical, heartrending, wise, unexpected, and weird. Weird in a good way--does a bereaved mother actually transform into a monstrous animal, or does she just feel like one? Kate Reading's deep, melodic voice reveals the very marrow of Elizabeth McCracken's memorable tales of love, family, and perseverance. She transforms into whatever character walks onto the page, be they an adolescent American boy, an aging male radio show host, a female ventriloquist, or a family of English upper-crust types, plus one Dutchman. In between the sparking dialogue, she narrates clearly, seriously, and, when needed, sardonically, as befits these witty, sagacious tales. A.C.S.
