Narrator Richard Poe matches the heartfelt frustrations of life's third act in this final of Ford's five novels featuring Frank Bascombe. Ford's stand-in, now 74 and semiretired, is attempting to create final memories with his son, who has ALS. Poe's basso profundo delivery describes their road trip to Mount Rushmore in a rickety RV with just the right vibe of the edgy anxiety of dealing with a dying child in the pre-pandemic America that elected a game show host as president. Fans will hear Poe's evocative voice lower and his delivery slow as Frank's son, Paul, simultaneously provokes his father's ire and love. It's a fitting end for one of contemporary literary fiction's most celebrated series. R.O. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
