Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Historical Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Focusing on the man he was and not on the legend he became, Russell’s novel masterfully imagines John Henry “Doc” Holliday’s everyday life. With a growly Southern drawl straight out of central casting, narrator Mark Bramhall saunters through the narration as confidently as Doc once strolled the dusty streets of nineteenth-century Kansas. Utilizing diverse drawls to differentiate infamous gunslingers—including Doc, Bat Masterson, and the Earp brothers—Bramhall also fluently transitions into international accents that reflect the ever-expanding influx of immigrants at the time from China and Europe. Bramhall’s soulful performance will resonate with listeners, who will hear John Henry’s passion for dentistry and love for his common-law wife, a prostitute, as well as his acceptance of his own fate in the face of death.
