Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Joe Barrett

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Salter is after nothing less than all that goes into the life of a mid-century American man, his surprises, successes and failures, friendships, loves and losses (and one shocking act of revenge). It’s a breathtaking achievement, quietly riveting, and this production is completely worthy of the novel. Joe Barrett is perfectly cast, with the warm, slightly graveled voice of a man who, like Salter’s Philip Bowman, has been around the block a few times. His performance is flawless, attentive, skillful, free of mispronunciations, questionable acting choices, or anything else that might take you out of the story. The production is equally polished, with no bad edits or level shifts to remind you that you’re listening to an actor in a sound booth. Pure listening pleasure. B.G.
