Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rebecca Lowman

Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Rebecca Lowman was born to narrate Laurie Colwin's transcendent novel, published posthumously in 1993. Lowman's extraordinary performance transports listeners to the charming Manhattan enclave where Colwin's characters continue to enchant. There is a lovely continuity to Colwin's stories, and Lowman's pitch-perfect characterizations and witty delivery of dialogue captures this privileged world where creativity, science, and delicious food predominate. Lowman is sharp-edged but sympathetic as she portrays Jane Louise, a 30-something book designer who has never felt settled except at work who falls in love with and marries Teddy, a chemist from small-town New England who has his own challenges. Lowman brings forth the novel's understated clarity and precision. What a treat it is to have Colwin's words delivered with Lowman's delicate care. M.J.
