Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Giambattista "Yambo" Bodoni awakens in a hospital with no personal memories. The sixtyish Milanese rare book dealer can recite every book passage or line of poetry he's ever read, but he cannot recognize his wife, his daughters, or even his own name. AUDIOFILE Golden Voice George Guidall puts an exotic edge in his voice as he narrates the story of Yambo's search through his grandfather's attic for the memories of his childhood, war, and early love. Missing from the audio are the 200 or so illustrations--photographs, comic strips, magazine covers, and advertisements--that Yambo uses to restore his memories. Guidall's melodic, well-paced reading and Eco's magical writing guide the listener so well that the illustrations are hardly missed. S.E.S.
