Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Suzanne Toren

Contemporary Culture • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Suzanne Toren's exquisite enunciation and no-nonsense manner meld beautifully with Donna Leon's sardonic, witty reflections on Venice and its denizens. Author of the much loved mystery series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti, American-born Leon has made her home in the watery city for more than 40 years. Many of her Brunetti mysteries are built around Venice's essential oddity and inscrutability, and these essays, first published in 2013, explore that theme in depth, as well as touching on her New Jersey childhood. Toren's pleasant mid-range voice invites listeners into the alluring calli y piazzas, while her professorial, often wry tone warns them to beware. Trash in the canals, nightmare real estate transactions, tourists in Bermuda shorts--Toren narrates it all with perfect timing and a wink. A.C.S.
