Fiction • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Lee, an Asian-American mathematics professor at a third-rate Midwestern college, engages in interior grumbling about the sorry state of his colleagues, students, and academia in general, when a mail bomb explodes in the office next door. Jealous of the successes of others, Lee, a solitary, embittered man, suddenly finds himself a person of interest in the bombing. Bernadette Dunne narrates Susan Choi's outstanding psychological study with understated authority. Lee isn't a likable man, and Dunne's quiet, thoughtful performance enhances Choi's intent. The author was a 2004 Pulitzer Prize finalist for AMERICAN WOMAN, which fictionalized Patty Hearst's kidnapping. This time Choi writes a parallel speculation around the Unabomber case, drawing listeners into the life of a critically flawed man in a society deeply distrustful of foreigners. Dunne's reading is precise, intelligent, and satisfying. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
