Fourteen-year-old Graham Sinclair's large, unusual hands make him a target of unrelenting daily harassment. His mother insists the name-calling allows him a better life than he would have if the secret of his hands got out. With a heavy Yorkshire accent, Euan Morton relates this unusual story of a young man trying to see his talent as a gift, not a disability. Employing a forthright, unemotional tone for Graham's voice, he draws the listener into this surreal mystery. This is a complex story and when you factor in the regional accent, the listener needs to pay close attention. Just when you feel totally lost, Morton shines a little light on the goings-on.
