Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mary Birdsong

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Mary Birdsong is the perfect narrator for this comic romp around the New York publishing scene. When boss-from-hell Vivian Grant begins to have speech patterns reminiscent of Claire Truman’s future mother-in-law, listeners are all but doubled over with laughter. Claire, the young protagonist, is unsure of herself, sounding peppy and innocent one minute, nervous and chiding herself the next. Musical interludes add their own comic twist. There’s good material for Birdsong to work with. Clark meshes literary history (entitling chapters after classics: The Bell Jar and The Sound and the Fury) with memorable sound bites from a high-tech lifestyle. The full book might be overkill, but this abridged version can’t help but delight anyone who’s ever fantasized about working in New York or brushed up against social climbers. R.R.
