Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Pittu

Fiction • 25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The sound of silk drawn across fine-grain sandpaper best describes David Pittu’s voice in THE MARRIAGE PLOT, by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jeffrey Eugenides. A tried-and-true plot device of writers like George Eliot and Jane Austen is reworked, reflecting the evolving feminist movement of the early 1980s. Pittu portrays college student Madeleine Hanna as she completes her senior thesis. His delivery of her anxiety about her career and romantic life imbues the story with a hypnotic tone that elevates the plot beyond a simple lovers’ triangle. The talented Pittu rises to the occasion of this challenging work, rewarding the listener with a sense of satisfaction reserved for great works of literature. R.O.
