Those of us who missed reading this 1995 National Book Award winner have another chance to acquaint ourselves with the principal character, Mickey Sabbath--this time in audio. Narrator David Dukes brings this antihero to life. He's a depraved 64-year-old retired puppeteer who lives off his alcoholic wife while pursuing his sexual excesses with another woman. Dukes bellows, whispers, cajoles, purrs, cries, and even taunts us with Sabbath's sexual escapades until we're ready to cry uncle. Then Dukes starts all over again. This clearly is one Roth offering that's even better in audio. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
