Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Grover Gardner

Contemporary Culture • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1967

AudioFile Golden Voice narrator Grover Gardner comfortably inhabits McPhee's curious mind and captures the eloquence of his prose in this splendid rendition of his short classic. The audiobook brings together the supreme storyteller and the exceptional story performer. Gardner's singular voice and intelligent style were made to deliver McPhee--his voicing of the author's TABULA RASA was awarded one of this magazine's Best of 2023. And this narration demonstrates how the author and narrator merge. McPhee's exploration of oranges ranges widely and digs deeply--from rootstock (lemon) to which side of the tree produces best (south). The author introduces the listener to the magnates and researchers, the growers and pickers. From grove to glass, McPhee has done the work. And this pleasurable listen is delivered by a master.
