Fiction • 6 hrs • Abridged • © 1995

A gold-hearted stripper from a sleazy joint somewhere in Minnesota is rescued by Texas Jack Carmine in this pickup truck odyssey of mellow romance and starry nights. Their love story alternates with Jack's uncle's dreams of adventure and nostalgia. Robert James Waller gives voice to his own work in this four-cassette abridgment. The "light" abridgment allows mood and tempo--often lost in shorter adaptations--to remain. Waller reads with the casual pacing and Texas country inflections that complement the text and bring images of Clint Eastwood to the listener. Waller's smooth reading is enhanced with music that bridges the chapters. Light, easy listening and folksy philosophy for Waller's millions of fans.
