Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicholas Boulton

Fiction • 38 mins. • Unabridged • © 2024

Nicholas Boulton delights in this story of passionate lovers. It's told from the perspective of a detective who is determined to charge the lovers with a crime following their torrid night of lovemaking in Spain's Guggenheim Museum. Boulton speaks brusquely as Detective Larramendi separately interviews the couple, who both offer the same explanation. Boulton uses pacing to deliver Isabel Allende's wry humor. As the woman, Bibiña, Boulton gushes with earnestness; as her lover, Indar, he conveys similar honesty but with a matter-of-factness that belies the fantastic nature of the couple's excuse. Despite his crusty nature, Detective Larramendi cannot help being captivated by the magically implausible story that the lovers tell. Neither will listeners. L.T.
