E.G. Marshall reads the PulitzerPrize-winning story of Cuban-American life and music in the early '50's. The rich color of this era is somewhat lost in the abridgment of the novel. The listener must concentrate to follow the flashbacks and recall the characters. Marshall brings nothing special to the reading. A celebrity reader puts an extra burden on the listener; initially, one listens to the voice, not to the story, but as the tape progresses the two merge.
