NEMESIS

by | Read by Dennis Boutsikaris

Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Having the youthful-sounding Dennis Boutsikaris narrate a book written by an older man is an interesting production choice. Philip Roth wrestles with some of the more harrowing themes of aging in his recent work. The story is told from the perspective of a 23-year-old man who is weathering a polio epidemic in 1943. But it is clearly coming from the wisdom and perspective of one of the elders in American letters. This disparity serves the audio production well. Boutsikaris lends a credibility to the novel’s observations and to their source, strengthening the protagonist’s "voice" while losing none of the wisdom gleaned from the author’s having been there, long ago.
