Fiction • 7.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

With allusions to Aristotle, Sartre, Wittgenstein, and Groucho Marx and moving from one historical period to another, the author has plotted an imaginative and microscopically detailed romance. James Wilby reads with grace and understanding. And when he switches from the essay to the story of the two lovers who meet and carry out their romance before our ears, his voice takes on the very flavors of each step of the affair. He gives the truth of an intimate relationship--from complaint to ardor--with sounds all will recognize. J.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
