Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dion Graham

Fiction • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Dion Graham's narration of McCann's novel is powerful, melodic, sensitive, and soaring in its emotional breadth and depth. Connor Lyons's quest to find his mother leads him to his father's house in County Mayo, Ireland. Graham continues to hone his exceptional gifts with perfect pacing and a poignant tone as Connor deals with the eccentric old coot. The strained father-and-son relationship depicted by Graham takes Connor through his father's colorful life as a war photographer and answers questions Connor formed during childhood. Can these two disparate characters find common ground and develop mutual respect? Piecing together a life from photographs, Connor comes to understand and appreciate his father's complicated, broken life and, in turn, develops insights into his own life choices. R.O.
