Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

There's plenty of sex in this audiobook, but the title is ironic. Narrators Scott Brick and Amanda Karr play the parts of a half-dozen characters, including a world-weary cafe owner, a waitress with star quality, and a philosopher with a deranged son. Although winsome and bursting with talent, the narrators are slightly miscast. Brick's Jewish accent misses the mark, and Karr's voice has too much of an Ivory Girl quality for the hard-edged beauty she portrays. Still, Baxter's writing is full of playful little bouquets like this one: "Making love to him was like going though a car wash, only you come out dirtier and more alive on the other end."
