A talented ensemble of narrators perform Paul Murray's Booker-shortlisted novel about an Irish family that is falling apart at its seams. Ciaran O'Brien performs the perspective of Dickie, a seemingly oblivious car salesman whose business is going under after the financial crash. Beau Holland narrates the perspective of Dickie's shopaholic wife, who is scheming to have her father-in-law come and set her husband's business to rights. The couple's teenage daughter, Cassie, portrayed by Heather O'Sullivan, and her anxious brother, PJ, performed by Barry Fitzgerald, each have secrets of their own. The narrators embody their characters, capturing their insecurities and eccentricities as their familial relationships deteriorate. Together, they create a cohesive portrait of a family on the brink of disaster. K.D.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
