Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dan John Miller

Fiction • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1980

Based on Conroy's own experience as an English major at the Citadel in the mid-1960s, this is a moving look at the horrors of the plebe system, the abuse of power, the meaning of friendship, and the making of men. Although Dan John Miller uses soft Southern inflections to set the mood for the narrative, his voice can jolt the listener when terrified freshmen experience hazing by upperclassmen and officers scream orders at cadets. Miller expertly captures the emotional heart of the novel—from innocent irreverence to justified anger, from first love to intense sorrow. The combination of Conroy's story and Miller's narration creates a lingering audio experience. The introduction discusses the novel's veracity and the repercussions of its publication. C.B.L.
