Fiction • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Five narrators weave a story that moves through several centuries as it examines the power of creativity. In soft, measured tones, Treat Williams portrays psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe, who becomes entangled with famous artist Robert Oliver after he attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art. Due to Oliver's silence in therapy, Marlowe seeks out the women in Oliver's life, painters all. Marlow's journey through Oliver's tortured past and present torments is seasoned by the other richly talented narrators, who tell Oliver's story of obsession and devastation, in counterpoint to his silence. Heche as Oliver's frank wife, Cottrell as his mistress, and Zimmerman and Lee as French ghosts all contribute to an exhilarating listening experience.
