Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

A witty, gracefully written, thoroughly researched work enters that overcrowded subgenre, the Hollywood send-up. Here, the son of a Russian ice man, a would-be writer, comes to 1913 Hollywood and gets involved with a fly-by-night film company. The audio begs the question: Is George Guidall capable of a bad performance? As always, he is perfectly in sync with the narrative tone. In addition, he finesses characterizations we haven't heard him do before--the very young hero, for instance; a Mexican prostitute-movie star; and various con men and sodomites still found in the L.A. film colony. A delightful, flawless listen. Y.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
