This audiobook marks the convergence of two Golden Voice narrators with one of the country’s finest fiction writers. Edoardo Ballerini and Julia Whelan narrate these empathic, witty, and finely wrought short stories. Whelan sparkles with her persuasive style, smooth tone, and practiced cadence. Her honey-coated voice is especially memorable in the ironic mode of “Mr. Voice” and “Famous Actor.” Ballerini contributed his own life history to the title story and performs with his characteristic empathy and signature evocative tone. He acts all his stories with restraint and veracity. Author Jess Walter ennobles his characters, giving them dignity in difficult circumstances and creating consequential experiences. Often set in the less glamorous parts of the country like Spokane and Boise, his writing truly makes the ordinary extraordinary. A.D.M.
