A skilled cast of seasoned narrators gives consistently disarming performances in King's first collection of short stories. The audiobook is filled with moments of want and desire and struggle. Cassandra Campbell embodies the voice of a 14-year-old au pair who is forced to ward off a father's advances, Bronson Pinchot is heartbreaking as a gay man who is invited for a drink by his homophobic college roommate years later, and Mark Bramhall captures the spirit of a boy who is left behind by his parents for the summer, only to discover his college-age caretakers open a new way of seeing his world. All the performances are subtle, occasionally humorous, and always devastating. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
