Carol Jacobanis skillfully narrates this endearing autobiographical short story. From a first-person perspective, Jacobanis inhabits the main character as she recounts a friendship she and her husband forged in their youth with two WWII veterans. Jacobanis portrays the unnamed narrator with a lighthearted charm and razor-sharp intellect, connecting listeners to this brief yet impactful piece. She lovingly flavors the cantankerous veterans, Francoise, a Frenchman, and John, an Irishman, with plausible accents and distinct personas. Jacobanis's performance is even theatrical at times. Listeners will enjoy clever, often bawdy humor intermingled with the darker, more serious undertones Jacobanis conveys with this poignant performance.
