There's so much going on in this compact audiobook that it hardly seems possible all the details could dovetail so well. Natalie Simpson is a deft narrator no matter where or when a scene is taking place. Her beautifully accented voice has a musical quality that suits Smith's lyrical prose. One minute Simpson is bringing the novel's beauty poetically to life through her savoring of the language, and the next minute she is capturing the subtle wit of its human comedy and tragedy. Grounded in the story of artist Sandy's trials during Covid restrictions, the narrative does not follow a traditional arc. The audio format suits the structure, but it still may not be to everyone's taste. The patient, receptive listener will embrace this title.
