NOTHING MAN A Tender and Humorous Quest for a Fresh Start

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karl Jenkinson

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Karl Jenkinson introduces Neville Watkins, who is shocked when his wife leaves him, he is fired from his job, and he plows into a car while sneezing. It is through that last event that listeners meet 50-something Neville and Laura, the other driver. Jenkinson outdoes himself performing characters of all ages and classes who are experiencing life's joys and sorrows. Things start looking up after Neville meets Laura's mother, Caroline, a confident, bossy woman superbly rendered by Jenkinson. Relatable incidents from Neville's ruthless firing to his thriving amid an eccentric ecology group will keep listeners captivated. Most memorable is Jenkinson's skill at recounting an incident in which mild-mannered Neville is handcuffed by the police after behaving like a terrorist. Audio is essential for the best experience of this lively novel. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
