Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • ©

Growing up in a small town on the Canadian prairie, Brian O'Connal is facing some of the big questions of life. Brian is 4 when he discovers a nest of newborn pigeons. How did the birds get into the eggs? Why did one die? After the premature deaths of his father and his dog, as well as the death of his grandmother, Brian asks himself why people die--why they "finish up." W.O. Mitchell reads his own work in a reflective, almost reedy tone. Despite being elderly when he recorded this work, his portrayal of a 4-year-old mind is authentic. Mitchell makes Brian's confusion palpable and his grief heartrending. A.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
