Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alma Cuervo

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Alma Cuervo's warm, rich timbre and measured style suit this captivating audiobook. Her delivery works perfectly as she emulates the author's empathetic tone and wit. This is a vividly imagined story of a novelist whose nom de plume is Scheherazade. She leaves Vermont and returns to her native Dominican Republic to bury her untold (unfinished) works. The plot takes a satisfying turn to magical realism when she creates a cemetery for the stories and their imaginary characters take over to tell them, enriching, embroidering, and re-creating their own lives. Julia Alvarez has crafted a fantastical world, packed with local color and expressions, and Cuervo ensures that it's enjoyable on audio. A.D.M.
