Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kenneth Martines

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Welcome, Hall Closet Book Company, to the ranks of the high-class audio publishers. Here is a gutsy book selection matched to a talented reader who is exactly the right choice for this audacious role. The lyrical way this production can amuse and provoke is realized through the earnestness of reader Kenneth Martines. Like this alternately ribald and wrenching novel, Martines elegantly commands language to foster acceptance. For the narrating character, Shed, so called after the building behind the brothel where he grows up and works, Martines endows words with a magical authority. As expressed by Martines, Shed's fascination with words can be contagious. D.J. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
