Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stephen Thorne

Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Lawrence Passmore is a writer whose TV sitcom has become a popular success in England. He is married, a father, lives in a grand house in a swank suburb, and he seeks every flavor of therapy from aroma to massage to psycho. Stephen Thorne's sustained intensity makes the written situations, which are already funny, into hilarious moments. He never takes a stab at trying to be funny--nor does he wait after delivery for the listener to "get it." The story runs on like life--without an announcement of what is funny or not. Little rises of inflection add to the humor of his matter-of-fact way of reading. The protagonist is recognizably human as he runs from aromatherapy to acupuncture with the need to find the cure for his ills. Reading the book was a delight, and hearing it doubled the pleasure.
