Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1977

This is the painfully real story of four aging office workers who lead lonely, pointless lives but who, nevertheless, move us in subtle ways. We care about Edwin, Norman, Letty and Marcia because Pym makes them so human, so fallible, so quixotic and so vulnerable. Life is not kind to the mediocre. Elizabeth Stephan gives a solid reading without attempting to dramatize characters or add much vocal variety. Her reading fits the mood of the story, the essential sameness of people and their routines. Worthy if not wonderful. D.L.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
