Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

This lovely debut novel spans a decade in three tangentially interlocking stories concerning the McLeod family. The first is about Paul McLeod, a recently widowed father of three young men, who is sorting out his feelings about his marriage while vacationing in Greece. The second is about his son Fenno, a gay, reserved bookstore manager transplanted to New York. And the third concerns Fern, an artist coincidentally encountered by both father and son. The stories are ruminative, mournful, and deeply affecting. John Keating has a melodious Scottish accent, and his American accent is convincing as well, though he tends to make everyone on this side of the Atlantic sound gay.
