Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Brimming with complex characters and political drama, TELEX FROM CUBA, a 2008 National Book Award Finalist, is a significant audio undertaking. The story explores pre-Castro Cuba from the viewpoints of various characters—from American ex-pat children to their self-involved parents to the central players in the rebellion. Narrator Lloyd James is understated and smoothly professional as he delivers the dense prose. When dialogue emerges, Lloyd doesn't miss a beat in the animation of the characters' voices as he takes on accents and emotions alike with verve. This story is epic in scope, with copious descriptions and a wide range of characters, both fictional and otherwise. TELEX FROM CUBA is best listened to with one's undivided attention in order to appreciate the gorgeous writing and Lloyd's subtle performance.
