Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Barbara Rosenblat

Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1978

Harriet Doerr's spare, poetic novel concerns a North American couple who settle in a remote Mexican village to re-open an old, family-owned copper mine. It's delivered with rare sensitivity by Barbara Rosenblat. Her exquisite narration lends an elegant weightlessness to the text while occasional, well-accented Spanish phrases add color. The precise, measured pace allows the listener to contemplate the novel's imagery and the author's pearl-like prose while it evokes the heat and slow tempo of life south of the border. With gravity and subtle humor, both author and narrator illuminate the drama of small human events and the preciousness of time passing. This memorable and thoroughly satisfying performance will resonate long after the tape ends. D.M.L. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 94]
