Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Carlotta Brentan narrates the story of a seemingly aimless young woman who is trying to survive. Alex is an unlikable grifter who moves through the world with no thought about the damage she causes to others or the harm she inflicts. Adrift after her relationship with an older man ends, she finds herself at loose ends on Long Island with no plan for how to make it through the upcoming holiday weekend. Brentan's flat delivery perfectly suits Alex's continual drugged state and affected indifference. Brentan provides a slightly brighter tone for secondary characters who interact with Alex. This ambiguous story is saved by Brentan's narration. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
