Stop reading now--well, in a minute. Go out immediately and get your hands on this audiobook. You will be rewarded with a perfect, if harrowing, literary entertainment that will be hard to put aside or forget. Eva Khatchadourian, an accomplished fiftyish woman, is writing letters to her beloved absent husband, Franklin, recalling their lives together as parents of son Kevin, who, at nearly 16, commits a massacre at his suburban New York high school. Rosenblat’s Eva is unsparing, sardonic, and lacerating, portraying motherhood as a nightmarish reflection of the idyll it is commonly assumed to be in our culture. The last cassette contains an interview with Orange Prize-winner Shriver, who is every bit as fascinating and provocative as her book. M.O.
