Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Barbara Caruso

Fiction • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

A timely novel that adds fuel to the debate regarding the risks to children from handguns, EVENING NEWS explores the family upheaval that results when a young boy plays with a neighbor's gun. One moment his little sister is playing in a wading pool, and the next her life is ended. Barbara Caruso's understated performance allows each listener to approach and relate to the characters and events in his or her own way. She brings the listener into the complex and intense emotions of the characters without sentimentalizing or becoming maudlin. Caruso narrates in a smooth and even flow, and her characterizations catch the nuances of the forces tearing at the son, his mother and his stepfather. J.E.M.
