Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Aasif Mandvi

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

A rich and complex novel of India and of modern man’s search for identity thrusts the listener into the myriad experiences of Willie Chandran, the everyman of this expansive journey. The changes in his life, which lead him from parental ashram to gated community in Africa to his sister’s political world in Berlin, ultimately result in his inspired decision to join the underground liberation movement in the jungles of India. There, surrounded by all classes of men, Willie discovers that not even this monumental sacrifice can create a meaningful life for him. An exceedingly lush reading by Aasif Mandvi only makes the listener more intrigued and involved. His impressive vocabulary of accents and his delicate renderings of characters imbue the novel with vibrant life and intelligence. B.H.B.
