A man pulled near dead from the Strait of Gibraltar believes he’s Christopher Columbus. He’s destined to remain in a Spanish asylum until he accepts that this is not so. It’s a slow journey during which the man works through his own story by recounting numerous stories from the life of Columbus to his devoted nurse, Consuela. Grover Gardner's sensitive and well-paced reading gives cohesion to a rambling story. This is not an audiobook to multitask to—as reality and illusion are in danger of becoming merged for the listener as well as for the patient. A small, regrettable error—the author's surname is pronounced differently in the credit and in the dedication. C.A.T. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
