Fiction • 24.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

A master of denouement, John Irving weaves a multigenerational, multilayered story, by turns funny and grisly. The novel begins in a logging camp in Coos County, New Hampshire, in 1954, and moves across the years and the continent to end in Pointe Au Baril Station, Ontario, in 2005. Arthur Morey narrates this complex novel with an impressive command of all the story's subtleties, keeping the listener's rapt attention. With the artist's delicate touch, he weaves an aural tapestry, bringing to life the complex personalities of cook Dominic Baciagalupo; his writer son, Danny; and their earthy, loyal friend, Ketchum. Morey carries off the juxtaposition of horror and humor with subtle nuances that engage the listener in this engrossing story. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2009]
