Narrator Jacques Roy does the heavy lifting in this update from the chronicler of American sexual politics and champion of nontraditional families. Harkening back to his first hit, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, this novel plays the same chorus with new verses. The ensemble voices in this behemoth of an audiobook take part in the imagined screenplays that are part of the novel. Roy's pleasing and cordial voice navigates the story of Rachel Brewster, Little Ray, and her son, Adam, as ghosts of former relatives haunt their unconventional family. Roy portrays gender twists and sexual violence with a steady hand. Fans will relish this report on society since 1950, but this audiobook isn't where you want to start your love affair with Irving.
