Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Fiction • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

George Guidall has made so many outstanding recordings that it's almost unnecessary to review his work. This production of Guterson's award-winning novel is no exception. It's the story of a fisherman's mysterious death at sea and the trial of Kabuo Miyamoto, a Japanese American, who has been charged with murder.The setting is a courtroom on the island of San Piedro in the Puget Sound during a furious snowstorm. Guidall's sensitivity to the weight of a phrase and the subtlety with which he presents the characters are masterful. His restraint when reading emotional passages adds to their intimacy and power. Guidall never intrudes but is always present to the listener. In this narration, the listener is carried out of present time into a world of prejudice, violence, love and dreams--all shrouded by the snow falling on cedars. L.R.S.
