Dani Martineck gives a reflective performance of this debut novel that perfectly suits its mood. Dawn is a bookbinder living in New York City in 2003. She feels stuck in every aspect of her life: her work, her relationship, her art, and her gender. When she discovers a queer love letter tucked into the cover of a book she's repairing, her quest to find the author turns into a catalyst for change. Martineck subtly alters their voice as Dawn moves through different gender expressions, capturing her shifting understanding of who she is and who she wants to be. In addition, Martineck nails the deep, raspy voice of the aging author of the love letter. A thoughtful, satisfying listen about queer identity and history.
