Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christian Baskous

Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Narrator Christian Baskous infuses this short story collection by a much acclaimed writer with vitality that brings its characters to life. The prose is tight and sparse; Baskous's narration gives us much more. His interpretation of Spanish-accented English is realistic, adding to the ambiance, rather than distracting us. He’s excellent at differentiating characters, particularly in the lengthy dialogue exchanges in various scenes. This is a volume that travels around Latin America from story to story, and Baskous is flexible as he brings across the angst of male youth in one story, the boredom of middle age in another. An outstanding book is matched by an equally strong delivery. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
