Richard Dooling's WHITE MAN'S GRAVE was nominated for the National Book Award in 1994 in its printed incarnation. Here, narrated by the incomparable George Guidall, it's quite simply the best novel I've listened to, possibly ever. The story itself is a miracle of ingenious irony set in Indianapolis, U.S.A., and Sierra Leone, West Africa. In the campaign of an American, cutthroat bankruptcy lawyer to find his son in West Africa and in that young man's own generally gruesome adventures, Dooling conjures up the anthropological affinities between the two cultures with comic ferocity. The entire affair is raised to the sublime by George Guidall's virtuoso rendering of American Big Cheeses and, most especially, by his rendition of Krio, an African patois of sorts.
