Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Haven Kimmel

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

This gripping production is a tour de force, a tale told by the unreliable narrator to end them all, a compellingly intelligent, emotionally shattered college student named Trace, who keeps losing track of what is real, who she is, and how she got that way while continuing to function well, even brilliantly. Trace explores mythic archetypes in her academic work, but slowly the listener realizes she is also living in a world of them. Haven Kimmel not only writes like an angel, she has a gorgeous warm voice and skills any actor would envy. I can't imagine a better narrator to present Trace's searching, terrible confusion, her incantatory understanding of the world, and the utterly harrowing truth about her past. Stunning work in every way. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
