Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dennis Boutsikaris

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Few books are given the tender loving care that Dennis Boutsikaris gives Underworld. And this book needs it. Its ambition is to explore the American sensibility during the Cold War. DeLillo is a fine, absorbing writer and complex thinker who seeks a thread uniting everything in our culture from our most superficial symbols and pastimes to our most desperate needs. Few readers strive to give us a sense of a novel's architecture of plot, its manipulation of tension and rise to a climax, much less its architecture of ideas. But Boutsikaris has done his homework. His insight is apparent in every line, not only for its immediate meaning and personality, but for its relationship to the whole. Having done so, he then proceeds to use his strong, youthful voice and mastery of technique to deliver a seemingly effortless and deeply expressive rendering of some mighty fine writing. A benchmark performance that others should aspire to equal. Y.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
