Hillary Huber's warm, expressive tones engage listeners with this contemplative novel set in New York City in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The narrative centers on a female writer at a "vulnerable" age who moves into the apartment of a friend to care for the friend's pet macaw, Eureka. Award-winning author Nunez's unique writing style fuses meditations, facts, and observations to create an emotionally rich listening experience. Huber skillfully channels Nunez's musings on loneliness, class inequities, and the animal world. Her thoughtful and poignant performance helps listeners appreciate the humanity and common human experiences at the heart of this story. Huber delights in this thought-provoking exploration of the need for human connection at a time of enforced isolation. M.J. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
